Raffia Woven Ceramic Bowl, Morocco
I think it’s safe to say that I’ve never seen a bowl quite like this one before! The bowl itself is made of white glazed ceramic, but its true uniqueness is highlighted by the decorative raffia woven along its rim. Local artisans manually gather the raffia fibers from raffia palm trees, giving the utmost respect to the environment while keep large corporations and outsiders from exploiting the land. The bowl measures roughly 7.5 inches in diameter by 3.5 inches high and is best if (carefully!) washed by hand & immediately dried.
Tall Flared Drinking Glass (Set of 2), Morocco
The pair of drinking glasses above come from Le Verre Beldi in Marrakech — the last artisanal, hand blown glass workshop in Morocco. Every day, two tonnes of glass waste are collected and remelted in an oven heated to around 1600 degrees Celsius. Artisans then use a combination of blowing methods and iron moulds to form each glass, which is finally put in an annealing oven for three hours. Since each piece is handmade, you may notice a few minor “imperfections” that make each one 100% unique. Each glass measures roughly 4.75 inches high with a 3 inch diameter and can hold up to 6 ounces of your favorite beverage.
Acacia Wood Napkin Holder, Thailand
The wood used for the napkin holder above comes from Acacia trees in the forests of Thailand. The Thai people strongly believe in taking care of the forested land and therefore make yearly trips to replant in the same areas they have taken from. The simple, understated design of this piece allows it to easily fit into just about any decor. It measures 5.5 inches wide by 3 inches long by 6 inches high and should be wiped clean (never submerged in water).
The September 2021 GlobeIn “Bash Box” included a nice collection of artisan-made kitchen and home decor pieces. My favorite items were the unique Raffia Woven Ceramic Bowl and Set of Flared Drinking Glasses. 🙂 — Remember, for a limited time you can save 50% on your first box with coupon code ARTISAN50!
