    Who made this product? In the heart of the Amazon in Peru, indigenous Yanesha artisans work with PaTS to sustainably harvest from managed forests that have long been their home. Hiking into the forest, the craftsman select 4 trees from an acre of land.

    Why is it ethical? The skilled artisans of PaTS, based in the Yanesha community of Peru, produce a line of handcrafted wooden bowls for the Sobremesa collection using wood sourced sustainably from managed forests in the Amazon. This means that wood supplied comes from forests evaluated for compliance with local laws, respect for indigenous peoples, and the safety and rights of forest workers.
