These bowls are made of resin embedded with real cinnamon pieces, and they smell as good as they look - the aroma of the cinnamon makes them ideal for serving fruit, cakes, biscuits and pastries. The edge and outside of each bowl is made up of a mosaic of coconut shell pieces. Sourced in Sri Lanka, they are hand made in Bali (Indonesia). PLEASE NOTE: I am away in Sri Lanka from 1st - 19th May. Any orders placed during this period will not be fulfilled until my return. With many thanks for your understanding.
