Emondo Kids Bamboo Karri the Koala Plate
Sometimes the original is the best! The plate that started it all - Karri the Koala. With three well-sized divides, even the most fussy eater will have fun with their food when their happy koala joins them at the table. This plate does have an Australian feel to it and would also make a lovely gift for a first birthday.
Bamboo is a natural product and therefore the bamboo used will vary in grain and colour. Karri the Koala Bamboo Plate measures 30cm x 19cm x 2cm.
Tell us a bit more about Bamboo?
Bamboo is actually one of the fastest growing plants in the world. Bamboo is easily able to tolerate its environment and therefore can be easily grown and farmed.
To turn bamboo into gorgeous kid-friendly plates, the bamboo is harvested and cut into strips. It is then pressure-steamed so that any bugs will be removed. There will be a certain length of time this is done for as the longer it is steamed, the softer & darker that the bamboo becomes. Finally a lamination process will take place which is done using several pieces of the bamboo. This does not involve any formaldehydes or glues which ensures your Emondo Kids products is free any any hidden nasties.
As bamboo is a natural fibre, it will naturally lose moisture over time. Therefore, to maintain the quality of this product, it is important to retain the moisture within the bamboo. We stock Fractionated Coconut Oil which can be sprayed or wiped over the Bamboo product which will help to retain the moisture of the product. It is not recommended to use normal cooking coconut oil as the product can go rancid.
To remove tough stains, vinegar and baking soda can be used on the plate/bowl before rinsing as normal. Once a month, rubbing a lemon slice with coarse salt will help to refresh the plate/bowl before treating with fractionated coconut oil.
