How leaf plates are made (See Video)

Collection: Nepalese villagers collect the Sal leaves from the surrounding areas. The leaves are sustainably collected by hand without killing the trees.

Stitching: They are washed then bamboo fibres are used to stitch the leaves together before being dried.

Pressing: Using a hydraulic press, the layers of stitched leaves are pressed together to create the product which keeps its shape thanks to the natural oils and robustness of the Sal leaves.

Finishing: Once the bowls and plates have been machine pressed into shape the edges are cut and the bowls are ready to be packed.

Feedback – Leaf plates

“Ordered these for a birthday picnic on the beach with some uni friends and I was blown away with the quality and feel, they are robust and have a very nice texture, really pleasant to eat off. We had salads in the bowls and even after use they still looked great so I couldn’t bring myself to throw them away, even wiped down a few and kept them for next time!”  – Amazon
