Zambian wood carvers create simple all-natural serving bowls from beautifully grained muzumina wood, also known as white seringa. The wood is sanded smooth and finished lightly with oil to condition and seal the wood. With these three sizes, the bowls can be used to serve salads of all sizes, from full family portions down to single servings.
Seringa is an eco-friendly hardwood product that has been recognized by Greenpeace, widely cultivated in well-managed forests or plantations with minimal harm to the environment.
Because this is a handcrafted item, each may vary slightly.
