The Banana Leaf in Recycled Rosewood


In stock


Hand carved from sustainably sourced root wood left from plantations in Indonesia, no piece is ever the same, they are unique from their shape to the grains in the wood. Simple and elegant, the Banana Leaf has a curved shape which is inspired by the banana leaf plants that are seen all over South East Asia. The leaves are used in many Balinese Hindu ceremonies, both symbolically, and functionally as they are woven into baskets to hold offerings to the gods.
