COILED PAPER BOWLS WITH LIDS.

COILED PAPER BOWLS WITH LIDS. Ref: 304260


Adapted from a traditional basket-making technique, these bowls are made with recycled posters from a printing company. Artisans form the paper into flat strips, dip them in a glue mixture and hang them to dry. After this they re-wet the strips and coil them into a bowl form. The strips are held together with the glue, forming a sturdy bowl.
I believe they were made in Vietnam.
They are very sturdy and strong, but must be used for dry storage only. The smaller one stacks neatly inside the larger one.

The largest measures 6 1/2 “ / 16.5 cm tall
6 3/4 “ / 17 cm diameter
The smaller measures 4 1/2 “ / 11.5 cm tall
4 1/2” / 11.5 cm diameter
