How are they made?
The elements in this set have been made by:
Our Bamboo Cutlery set is completely handmade from 100% natural bamboo in Bali. The bamboo utensils are made by Yas and her team in their workshop in central Bali. They are made from Bambu Petung, a species that grows very big, very fast. The whole process is handmade. First they have to cut the stalks of bamboo, which can measure up to 30m, into small slabs. The slabs are drawn with the template of the utensil, which is then cut, sanded and coated with Virgin Coconut oil to waterproof them. The Bamboo Straw is made by Srii and Budi, as well as by Wayan and Gitok, using bambu buluh, a species of bush bamboo that also grows in Bali.
The whole process of making these utensils, as well as the bamboo straw, is completely handmade. No part of the process makes use of any type of heavy machinery, and the bamboo is grown sustainably without the use of chemicals or fertilizers. Everything is certified Vegan too!
