The Rica fruit bowl is made from Teak root material. This is the leftover wood from Teak plantation logging operations that is normally burnt or disposed of so products made from it are quite environmentally friendly. This wood has great color and character and no 2 of these products will ever be the same -they are all completely individual. Once the wood is selected skilled craftsmen carve it by hand until the natural shape is realized from within. The shape of the starting piece dictates the final shape of the bowl and it is carved and carved until the bowl itself is quite thin and light. This gives the product a completely different presence to our chunky bowl models and results in a very beautiful product. The finishing touches include a diligent fine sanding that smooths the sharp edges while leaving the natural shape and then some coats of food-grade mineral oil and beeswax seal and protect the wood while enhancing the amazing color of the Teak root.
