A Taste of Summer


One of my favorite things about summer is outdoor dining: picnics in the park, backyard BBQs and who doesn’t love a rooftop cocktail party? What I don’t like is the hassle of using indoor dishware for outdoor dining. And I’m not too thrilled with the idea of using disposable dishes either. Well, fear not. I’ve found the perfect summer companion for outdoor dinning! Introducing the often-imitated, never duplicated, stylish collection of handcrafted bamboo dishware from French company Ekobo.

“Ekobo combines timeless contemporary design with a thoughtful, ethical ways of working.” Jacques Abelman

Ekobo’s extensive collection of over 350 hand-crafted pieces come in a wide range of colors to fit any decor or style. These eco-chic, multi-functional containers will brighten up your picnic table, as well as every room in your house: kitchen, bathroom, bedroom or living room. Ekobo products are food-safe and suitable for both hot and cold foods. Everything about Ekobo’s sleek products and business methods are entirely eco-friendly, from production to packaging:

Employment:
Ekobo collaborates directly with bamboo villages in Vietnam (read: no middlemen). As a result, artisans are paid more than double the going rate and production is more efficient with a higher level of quality control. Today, Ekobo employs more than three hundred bamboo artisans.

Education:
The company shares innovative and modern applications of bamboo with local artisans to give more value to their skills in today’s marketplace. Ekobo also contributes to the preservation of the environment by continually searching for and educating on more ecological manufacturing and production processes.

Sustainability:
Ekobo’s partnership with artisans helps to protect the future of this traditional craft, while generating a regular local income. In addition, recycled paper is used to wrap and pack each and every product at the source.
