The Banana Leaf Tapered Tray is crafted from the locally-gathered leaves and stalks of banana trees. Artisans use a specially designed, handmade needle to thread dried banana leaves around the banana stalks. The result is a super-sturdy tray that’s great for any use. We like to use the deep tray for serving (it has handles on either side), for storage, and for organizing stuff! Try one in your guest room for holding rolled towels. The diagonal side walls of the tray make them not only stylish, but easy to stack.
The Tapered Trays are made by artisans from the Abaharaniriterambere People Fighting for Development Cooperative, who meet on their local school grounds.
- Tapered Trays are made from hand-gathered local banana leaves and stalks.
- On average, deep trays measure 9.5” x 12” at the base, and 16” x 18” at the top, with a height of 4.5”.
- Care: Wipe with a damp cloth. It’s no problem to get our banana leaf trays wet, as long as you dry them out again in the sun.
