Long rectangular plate made from maple wood. A perfect piece to present your appetizers or desserts to your guests, or simply to display sprigs of dried flowers, small accessories and other objects.
This product can be safely used as a dish (food plate) as the wood is dyed with a water resistant dye, however, stains and dirt may remain if used for a long time with a large amount of moisture or oil. Please wipe off the dirt as soon as possible after meals.
Dyed with a mordant made from plant colourant and natural ingredients.
Each individual plate will contain its own unique expression, depending on the wood grain or the characteristics taken on from the natural dyeing process. Slight differences in appearance are to be expected.
As with other wood products, stains may occur if soaked in water or left with watery vegetables for a long time. When washing dishes, wipe off the dirt with a soft sponge or cloth and wash off with running water. Do not use bleach as it may discolor the wood when exposed to the bleaching chemicals.
In addition, please be careful as it may cause cracking and warping if exposed to excessively dry (dehydrated) environment or direct sunlight.
