Eco-Friendly Bamboo Serving Trays


Limited supply...order quickly!


Each serving tray is hand crafted from repurposed bamboo picture frames. These are one of the most eco-friendly products I have found, made from 100% bamboo, a self renewing grass resource. Organic, water based finish does not contain any oils or chemical solvents. The glass, matboard, backing boards, & original packing are all made from recycled paper, making each one an environmentally friendly addition to your decor.

Please check back.


Hardwood Serving Trays

Each serving tray is hand crafted, making each one unique. The hardwood I use is environmentally friendly poplar, known for its long lasting quality & beauty. Each piece of lumber has been individually chosen for its special characteristics, grains, & striations, which are only enhanced by the finishing process, making it vary from piece to piece. The image & specialty non-glare cover are sealed to ensure against moisture damage. Of course, it is NOT dishwasher-safe!
