Newspaper bowl - Square, Medium, 4 colours
These bowls are handmade in Sri Lanka using rolled up strips of newspaper, which have been dyed bright colours with natural plant-based dyes. They are held together with simple white craft glue. When dry, the glue turns clear and creates a strong protective bond that makes these bowls surprisingly sturdy. An ingenious and ecological way to use up old newspapers. These medium bowls can be used as small cake or fruit baskets (a paper napkin inside will keep them clean), or dressing table organisers for cosmetics, bangles and so on. Not suitable for anything wet, of course. Measurements: 22 cms square x 8.5 cms high.
Please note: due to the handmade nature of these bowls, slight colour variations from the photos may occur.
