"Uniting two very different worlds – the natural and the modern – is Son Mai's distinctive tableware collection. Crafted from bamboo, each piece provides a unique juxtaposition of textural crushed eggshell, a glossy coated exterior and a sleek neutral interior. Handmade using traditional techniques, these water-resistant creations are ideal for serving food and are durable enough for outdoor entertaining. The simple shapes of the bowls, platters, footed bowls and salad servers are perfect for showcasing and serving tasty treats. The colour-pop shades will give your kitchen a contemporary edge, while the crackle effect finish adds unexpected pattern and style. One of our favorite designs is the oblong barrel-shaped bowl, which would make a highly decorative arrangement filled with fruit, bread or ornamental wooden balls."
The fruit platter pictured above is absolutely beautiful and can be used as either a display platter on a table or for a side dish at dinner such as garlic bread.
They have a large selection of bowls that are absolutely beautiful and come in almost every color. The outside is smooth and glossy and the inside, beautiful bamboo. I liked the set of white, black and eggshell!
The above picture is square plate platter, I love this piece, the way the the bamboo goes out from the center in perfect circles. It is perfect to be used as a fruit display platter for a center piece on a table, or could be used as a dinner plate.
They also sell salad bowls, the one I reviewed was the eggshell piece. This is my absolute favorite. They literally press eggshells into the sides of the bamboo bowl and varnish over top. It is absolutely stunning. The salad tongs that I received with the bowl were natural bamboo with the Son Mai logo painted on the top of the handle for a beautiful and modern look.
Another stunner is the Gunilla-ware. The Gunilla-ware is hand painted by the famous Norwegian painter Gunilla Holm Platou. She is known for her "refined sense of color and ability to leave her audience feeling good".
