Manu's Palace • 10 inch Bamboo Plate • Set of 2
If you’ve been following along on the Jana Lam journey for a little bit, you may know that we’ve done a few collections of tableware in the past. While we loved those collections, made directly from our printed fabric, they proved to be difficult to make and also turned out to be not so practical for food usage. So the idea of making actual plates that functioned for all things edible has been floating in our collective conscience for quite some time, but we just needed the time to research and move forward. And at long last they are here, our first ever dinner plates; a set of 2, made of Bamboo Fiber. You can actually eat off of them, and they are dishwasher safe (though not microwave safe). But if you’re like me you may even want to put them out for display in your home as little something we call Dish Decor!
Set of two 10" bamboo fiber plates
Do not microwave, Dishwasher safe
Designed in Hawaii, USA
The native Manu-O-Kū (White Fairy Tern) is actually an urban-dwelling bird in these islands and Honolulu is the only city in the United States where they make their nests, which makes it particularly special to the people of Oahu, even beyond just being endemic to the Hawaiian Islands. For this design however, I imagined the Manu in a more remote jungle location, a whimsical palace if you will, for this magical-looking bird. When I get a chance to see this beautiful white Fairy, I am always mesmerized and filled with happiness. I hope it makes you happy too!
