Bamboo Lacquer Bowls - Coloured
Available in 2 gorgeous colours, these bowls are made from bamboo.
One of the most versatile natural materials available today, bamboo has been used in everything from clothes to building houses.
Our bowls have been made in Vietnam.
The raw bamboo is cut down into very small strips, softened and then moulded with glue into the shape required. It is then dried in natural sunlight and sanded and polished many times. Finishing involves delicate and highly skilled workmanship involving the application by hand of many layers of coloured lacquer to achieve a perfect iridescent finish. Our supplier employs 60 people. 30 are in the main facility and 30 are home workers. All have good rates of pay and benefits including subsidised medical care, sick pay, insurance & paid holidays.
