Business: Babylon Trading
Product: Sustainable Range of Salad Bowls
Recommended By: Miri

“Our sustainable range of salad bowls come in various seaside themed designs of fish, crabs & octopuses.
Made with Mango wood with enamelled design detail on the inside, Mango wood is sourced from sustainable production where stock is constantly replaced, Mango trees cease bearing fruit after 15-20 years at which point they are sold as timber.

In addition to being sustainably sourced, the bowls are perfect for Spring/Summer as salad bowls & make a cheerful quirky addition to the dining table, in an indoor or outdoor setting.

We love these bowls as they make useful, quirky & sustainable tabletop products.
Available from our tabletop collection online from £34”
