Hand Polished Sago Palm Wood Rect Platter 45x15cm
Our tableware is made is made from a type of palm tree known locally as ‘Aren’ a relative of the sago palm which grows in and around the villages of Bali and Java. Only the outer ring of wood is used as the inside of the trunk is soft and pithy. The wood has an unusual black grain and is polished to a shine. It is very difficult to work with and it takes great skill to produce these pieces. The wood is strong and it can be washed with soap and hot water but if you want it to remain shiny it must be oiled regularly with a vegetable oil.
