Individual detail can make a room and something as simple as a brightly-coloured bowl can be just the pop of colour that is needed. This handmade bowl is cleverly made from half a coconut shell and is delicately hand-painted and varnished to look just like a juicy watermelon. It makes a fab trinket dish or is bright and eye-catching enough on its own as a mini piece of fruit art that looks good enough to eat. Custard anyone?

The manufacturing processes juxtapose traditional methods, i.e. wood carving and pot throwing, with relevant and up-to-date modern design. Workers use components such as sustainable wood, ceramics, terracotta, iron and glass in their products. Artisans’ skills are boosted by training and workers receive paid leave, GPA and bonuses.
