Coconut milk is key to much Balinese cooking which leaves a huge mountain of empty coconuts.
Fortunately, Bali is packed with creative artists who put their skills to good use producing these decorative bowls that can be used in a wide variety of ways. A wonderful re-purposing use of a waste product.
Made from cut-out coconut shell.
My favourite use for these is with a tea light as it throws magical mesmerising patterns through the cut outs. Fairly traded, supporting artisans in Indonesia.
Silver coloured lacquer inner.
Approximate size: 13 x 8 cm.
Made in Bali, Indonesia
* There will be natural variations as coconuts grow to different sizes!
