    • Crafted of compressed bamboo from Cat Dang, Viet Nam

    • Measures 11.75 inches in diameter x 4.5 inches high

    Story Behind the Art:
    In the village of Tien Lu, the creation of baskets, lacquer ware and other handicrafts is an integral part of the community and culture, even causing a festival every year on August 21st. Domestic competition for the tourist market tends to cheapen both quality and the artisans' return from their work. This group, already with nearly 100 members, hopes to expand through Worldstock, bringing additional villagers into better-paid work in improved conditions.

    What is Worldstock?

    Put some moss in the bottom added some metal balls and a few twigs this looks like a $*** piece. Love it!!! This is a gift for a real neat lady, she'll absolutely love it too! There are so many possibllities for this bowl--you can't go wrong--it would also look wonderful with nothing in it. Great purchase!

Answer This Question

I think you could use it for a chip bowl during a party, or a bread bowl. I wouldn't do more than rinse it out with water though. ictks on Jan 16, 2013
