Each bowl is individually hand crafted, so each and every one is unique so expect natural variation. The average diameter is 13 cm and depth 5.5 cm.
Once the craftsmen collect the empty coconut shells, they then proceed to clean the outer husk and sand both the outer and inner shell until smooth. The final action is to rub and polish either with virgin coconut oil or food safe mineral oil to nourish the wood of the shell.
