Terrestra has been testing lacquered bamboo tableware from many sources since 2003 and this collection is the best we've ever seen. The attention to detail in shape, finish, and balance is unsurpassed. 100% natural and food-safe, these bowls are produced by fair-trade artisans using techniques refined in Vietnam for centuries. Every bowl is carefully assembled, protected with a food-safe varnish, and painstakingly lacquered in multiple coatings of bright, glossy color. With proper care these bowls will serve your family and guests for many years.
