Bamboo Utensils by Yasmin
Billions of plastic forks, knives, spoons, and straws are discarded every year around the world.
Recognizing this problem, Yasmin set out to create an alternative to wasteful plastic using eco friendly and sustainable methods utilized by local craftspeople in her community.
Made in Bali, Indonesia, local bamboo is harvested from Jati Luwih village and treated using river water in a process that preserves the wood. Each piece is then carved by hand and finished with a food grade varnish that seals and protects the set. Yasmin creates the carrying cases for each set in her office.
Using unique, locally sourced fabrics, each pouch is sewn by hand for a quality construction. The utensils can last up to a year of everyday use before needing re-coating or replacement.
With a zero-waste policy, each set comes with a lifetime warranty, so when the usable life of the set is reached, the expired items can be returned for repair or replacement at 50% cost.
Space Pirate Trading currently offers these utensils in sets. Custom orders are available including bulk straws, chopsticks, knives, forks, and spoons with or without cases. Custom branding is also available. Please contact us for more information.
