Bamboo Mortar & Pestle
NATURE’S MVP (most versatile plant . . . very possibly) . . . Bamboo is a natural grass that is constantly replenishing – therefore it is known to be a sustainable resource. Bamboo is less absorbent than wood and is therefore easier to keep clean and sanitary. Bamboo is attractive and lightweight and can be left untreated in its most authentic state or it can be treated to lend itself to certain purposes. It is also used for many things from construction of furniture and houses to snacking on and powering diesel engines with – it is one of the most versatile resources in the world (just don’t try to eat the utensils!)
A traditional and beautiful design that will get the job done. It stands out among other mortars & pestles because of its uniquely simple, rustic shape and carmelized finish; the straight-up bowl and wide pestle make for quick work. 4”H.
(“Carmelization" means to darken bamboo skin's color. Once the bamboo culm has been cut into strips, then they are boiled and bleached and dried. Once dry, they are put into a large oven to bake in the darker color. This is an all natural process.)
