Turn over a new leaf…
Products & FAQs
What are they made of?
Shorea Robusta leaves, which are available in abundance in tropical forests. No trees are felled – just mature leaves harvested
How are they made?
Few leaves are put together with small bamboo twigs to make a layer. Depending on the size of the plate / bowls, 3 to 4 layers of leaves are put in a mold and briefly heat pressed to create the finished product. The natural wax of the leaves is released during the process to stick the layers together.
Are they leak proof?
The 3 to 4 layers of leaves we use make our products very sturdy and leak proof, making them suitable for soups and gravies.
Are these products edible?
Surprisingly we get this question a lot. No these are not edible and go straight to the “green bin” after you finish eating your food 🙂

How long do they take to compost?
“Compostable” is getting to be a dirty word. City of Vancouver has already banned “compostable” plastics from their ‘green bin’. The slew of “compostable” fiber serveware are everywhere. Please read about them here.
Our products are literally just leaves. Like the ones you pick up from your backyard in the fall and throw in the compost bin. There’s no other ingredients. So yes, they compost easily in a few weeks, like any other organic matter and don’t need a controlled scientific municipal facility to do so 🙂

Dinner and side plates
We guarantee these plates are sturdier than plastic, paper and fibre plates. They feel strong and lets you freely “pile up” the grub from the buffet. The Sol L is a great look for outdoor weddings. The Sol S works very well for house parties. The Sol M is perfect for parties and events.
These are about an inch deep and are excellent for soups and desserts. Yes hot soups are perfectly safe in these 🙂
PS – don’t forget to check out our oval bowls from the catalogue. They’re really cool!
Samplers and dippers
These are the little guys. They are cute and functional and perfect for dips. Our customers use them for booth / stall samplers and also to adorn grazing boards. The Luna L is also the perfect size for snacks like “vada pav” (there’s one for “hey google”)!!
Yes we have them. These are made from coconut palm leaves and are our featured product. They do not go soggy in a drink for at least 3 hours and have no funny after taste. And if you’re having a cocktail these really take the aesthetics to the next level. We are able to customize the size of these straws based on your bulk requirements.
