    • Crafted of compressed bamboo from Cat Dang, Viet Nam

    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.

  • Love it!

    I love this pedestal! The color is more of a burgundy ... a darker red then the photo shows but very much in the red family. The photo makes it look almost candy apple red, but it's not-- it's a gorgeous color though. It has a very faint black in the color too.... which makes it match my decor brilliantly. If you buy this, you won't be disappointed. It's a very lightweight, beautiful piece.

    I got this for a friend for her new apartment. It looks even better in person. It's a gorgeous red and yes it is bright but not in a tacky way. I think my friend will love it and appreciate it.

  • Lovely decorative bowl

    This bowl is beautiful , and really sets of anything one would choose to put in it. I filled it with fresh fruit and have it on my kitchen table. Something more formal in another room would work as well. I love it!

    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!

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
