These lightweight chemical-free pieces are handcrafted from paper pulp and fuller's earth clay. To give a shape of a tray it is first applied to a steel utensil that is used as a mold. After applying 3-4 layers to the paper pulp structure it is thoroughly sun-dried as pure paper pulp has high water content. Since it is handcrafted the roughness and originality add beauty to this 100% biodegradable product. Hand painting adds an appealing, decorative touch to this bowl.
