The odd-shaped plates the Japanese use for their food have become as much a part of Japanese cuisine as the food itself. The idea is that tableware should have an organic relationship to the food served on it and organic is exactly the operative word when it comes to describing the Wasara Oblong Paper Plate Set! Their shape and texture fit so perfectly with all kinds of Japanese dishes that you won't believe that they are actually made of paper and meant to be thrown after your meal!
The secret story behind the plates in the Wasara Oblong Paper Plate Set is that they weren't just made to be a classier alternative to the standard disposable plates we all know from children's parties. What their manufacturer aimed for was something that would be as eco-friendly and yes, organic as possible, so the material used is paper that not only biodegradable but also made from bamboo and sugar cane fibers (bagasse). If you're looking for tableware that not only looks amazing but also lets you help our planet, Wasara is the answer!
