At the end of the 1970's, self-described Vietnamese peasant girl Little Moon left her homeland, alone, for France at the age of 13. After 20 years of a professional career in France, she decided to return to visit her homeland, with her husband, Simon Trabuc. Together, they devised a plan to utilize Vietnamese artisans to help benefit the local economy. The result is an impressive array of fair trade, eco-friendly items created from bamboo.

This handmade bamboo salad bowl is inlaid with real duck eggshell, a long and meticulous process that makes each piece unique. Lacquers and varnishes are food-safe and solvent-free. This bowl is also impressive enough in its own right to display as a design object.

Bowl is safe with liquid or solid foods, chilled or hot (up to 70 degrees Centigrade, 128 degrees Fahrenheit). Hand wash in hot water, rinse and dry thoroughly after washing; not for dishwasher or microwave.
