Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on earth and is very environmentally friendly. These beautiful bowls and salad servers are made for Namaste in Vietnam by skilled craftspeople. Namaste tries to support traditional craft work and artisans who specialise in skill based products. 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.
