  • Roots Motif Tray

    Functional Art. 
    Whether you're using this wooden tray to serve a small charcuterie or to hold remotes, jewelry, or whatever, this interesting tray will be surely be a conversation starter. In our own experience, friends can't help but trace the path of the 'roots' and ask how this cool piece came to be. We'll tell you...

    These aren't actually roots, the pattern is created by painting lines of baking soda, a good conductor of electricity, onto the wood and running a current through the wood. Cool, right?

    We believe this tray makes a great host gift or Valentine's gift. 

    Plus, each is handcrafted by artisans working with Noah's Ark, a fair trade organization in Moradabad, India. Feels good to buy beautiful products that help communities and do no harm to the planet.
