Areca leaf plates
by Leaf & Fiber are manufactured from the fallen leaves of the Areca Palm tree. The tree is endowed with huge leaves and fronds, which shed and fall to the ground every few weeks.
These leaves are turned into disposable plates, bowls and platters as an alternative to plastic, styrofoam and paper plates.
The material does not react with food and will not add any additional taste or chemicals to it. All manner of wet foods can be served without the plate or bowl becoming soggy and losing its integrity. Areca leaf plates
are nature's own solution to the harmful results of using paper and plastic disposables.
The fallen fronds of the Areca Leaves are collected, pressure cleaned and sun dried. Then, they are heat pressed to produce the appropriate plate and bowl shapes. That's it. No chemicals are used during the entire manufacturing process. Each plate is handmade with care.
