One of bambu's specially designed travel pieces for people on the go, the 'spork & cork' contains one of our best-selling sporks in a stylish cork fabric sleeve.
As the clever name suggests a spork is a cross between a fork and a spoon and is ideal for keeping in a lunch box and for picnicking. Made from a single piece of bamboo, then hand shaped and finished.
The handy carry case is ideal for keeping the spork in your bag. It is made from cork fabric - an innovative material made from a thin layer of cork applied to a cotton backing. The cork fabric is amazingly supple and tactile, with a lovely matt finish and a smooth leather-like feel. It is also very durable, anti-microbial, water and stain resistant and is even machine washable.
The spork can be washed in the dishwasher however, as with wooden products, we recommend hand washing to prolong life. The case can be machine washed on a cold cycle.
10cm x 5.5cm. Spork is 9cm.
Bambu is committed to the fair treatment of workers, promoting healthy communities and preserving the environment. The utensils are made in China by a co-operative where the craftspeople are involved in setting the pricing levels.
Miracle plant bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world, and is an endlessly renewable resource - growing new shoots from its root system after being harvested. It thrives naturally without using any pesticides or fertilizers, takes in greenhouse gasses and produces 35% more oxygen than the equivalent trees.
Cork is renewable and biodegradable, one of nature's most remarkable resources. The bark of a cork tree is sustainably harvested every 10-12 years. It quickly regenerates and the tree continues to flourish, generally improving the tree's health and vitality. The tree plays a vital role in balancing the ecosystem. Cork forests are essential to preventing soil erosion, maintaining water resources and storing CO2. Cork trees live an average of 150-200 years.
