Acaciaware® by Pacific Merchants Trading Company is the original eco-friendly acacia hardwood, harvested from privately owned lands. Acacia wood is naturally resinous, resisting penetration by liquids and the hardwood will not stain or pick up odors. All of Pacific Merchants Acaciaware® acacia wood bowls are hand turned and their other acacia wood items like our acacia wood plates or other acacia wood specialty items like pineapple shaped trays and shell shaped serving trays are hand carved, giving each piece a unique grain and beautiful look. Even their packing material is eco-friendly, made from recycled shredded cardboard boxes! Acaciaware® is easy care! Just hand wash with warm soapy water and air dry.
