This low bowl is handmade in Southeast Asia out of teak wood, an abundant natural resource native to the region. Teak’s high oil content, tensile strength, and tight grain make it particularly suitable to withstand water and changing weather conditions — making it remain durable even not treated with oil or varnish. That’s why it is commonly used for manufacturing a wide variety of goods, from furniture and boat decks, to cutting boards and kitchen utensils. As teak ages, it slightly darkens and becomes more reddish in color, developing a unique patina.
Each product is made from a single piece of wood and initially treated with food-safe palm oil. As second-generation craftsmen working with wood and lumber, the artisans who create these pieces are environmentally-sensitive at their core. Every source for wood is certified by the Department of Forestry to have used sustainable farming practices. The teak used is also harvested at the precise age when the tree yields the highest quality wood, ensuring long-lasting use.
