Traditional Bamboo baskets have been used for centuries in food preparation and trading and are often sized according to the amount of rice they hold. Common sizes range from 1-15 kilos. After being expertly crafted, they are lightly smoked to preserve them for years of use.
When we first open the rice bag packaging that brings these baskets to our store, we swoon in the amazing aroma of the smoked bamboo. After time and use, the scent fades, but the rich color of the smoked bamboo lasts forever.
