Chip and Dip Platter:
Brand: Core Root Crafts
Making the most of wood and its natural beauty: Those are the raisons d’être behind this home-accessories brand. Artisans craft its sculptural bowls and platters from leftover stumps of shan mu, a durable species of Chinese fir. The removal of these stumps—often left behind by loggers—both facilitates faster reforestation and maximizes the use of this lustrous resource, proving doing good and looking good can be one and the same.
