Wound Bamboo Vase

It's a bit of attractive simplicity and what's more this vase is all natural and is made from renewable materials. The wound bamboo comes from Cat Dang, Vietnam. The soaked bamboo is cut into very fine strips and pressed into a curve, and coated with a cashew oil-based glue. Each piece is cut, shaped and smoothed by hand, as many as four times, and then polished repeatedly. Made by the WorldStock group of villagers. They sell for about $30. :: Overstock
