Coconut Wood

 Product Care Blog Coconut Wood

Our coconut wood products come from Vietnamese coconut trees which has an unusual grain. It is a sustainable resource as new trees are planted for ones that are felled. 

Perfect for cooking and serving food. The smooth texture of this wood means that our utensils are gentle on pots and pans. This is a hardwearing material, which will last a long time with considered use and careful cleaning.

Hand wash only. Dry thoroughly before use.
Applying coconut oil every few months will help seal and strengthen the wood.

After some time, your utensil may dry out, become brittle or chip. Use a fine grain sandpaper to smoothen out the surfaces and edges. Then apply one or two layers of good quality coconut oil to revive and add shine. This should help your utensil last for many years.

We also have a blog post detailing reviving your wooden utensils which you can see here.

Lacquerware Collection

Products Care Blog Lacquerware 01

Our collection of lacquer trays and accessories is created using an ancient method, which takes over two and a half months to complete.

Every single item is lacquered by hand, with over twelve layers of natural lacquer, each buffed, then dried naturally.
This process is the only way to ensure a depth to the glossy, mirror like finish and is incomparable to synthetic mass produced alternatives.

Lacquer is relatively resistant to heat and moisture, so our trays, boxes and accessories can be used for serving drinks or food, organising in the bathroom and storage on a desk or dressing table.

Wipe clean with soapy water and buff with a household polish to maintain a high gloss shine.


Cinnamon Collection

Product Care Blog Post Cinnamon

All of our cinnamon products are handmade using the bark from Vietnamese cinnamon trees. This type is called Saigon Cinnamon, which has a strong aroma and sweet flavour, often associated with many types of cuisine across the globe.

Our project involves the replanting of cinnamon trees to maintain a sustainable forest.

Use as storage canisters for sugar, coffee, tea and hot chocolate. Various boxes are perfect for storing, displaying or gifting chocolates, nuts or dried fruit. All will be infused with the gentle
flavour of the spice.

Keep the cinnamon in a dry environment. Hand wash only. Dry thoroughly before use. If the scent fades, use fine grain sandpaper to remove the surface layer to enhance the scent.

We created a leaflet that contains the information above in condensed form which is available from our retail shop. One is also added to each package we deliver.
