Granadillo leaf coasters
Artisan made in Guatemala
Irregular wooden Granadillo coasters are beautifully made by local skilled carpenters from the Peten Jungle in Guatemala. The exotic wood is sustainably harvested and FSC certified. Our partners in Guatemala work to create jobs and foster positive social impact in a place where poverty is common.
Granadillo is reddish brown colouring mixed with violets and orange, often called ‘the wood that sings”.
Size: between 11cm and 12cm diameter, each one varies slightly
Hardwoods will last a lifetime with a little care. We recommend conditioning boards/ spoons/ knifes with a mixture of beeswax and food safe mineral oil, linseed oil or any other natural oil that does not turn rancid. Do this once a week for the first month and then periodically to restore vibrancy when the wood dulls. Items can be washed with warm soapy water but never leave them sitting in water.
Do not put items in the dishwasher.
