Product Description

The napkin holder is made of immunized guadua, a plant similar to bamboo grass. It has an arboreal, thorny and a water-filled stem, usually measuring up to 20 m (65.6 in) high by
20 cm (25.6 in) wide. The process natural process with the guadua is quite interesting. First, the artisans must choose the most mature guaduas to inject them with immunizing liquid, something which has to be done early in the morning in order to locate the position of the water in the stem. Then, with the help of the sun, the water goes to the leaves producing the guadua intoxication, and after a month the harvest begins. It’s very important to cut the guadua on waning moon.
The cutting process is made with a disc cutter and a polisher, paying special attention to the natural brightness of the plant.

 

The design of the napkin holder is a part of the imagination and creativity of each artisan, therefore it represents genuine artwork and not an industrial design. It should be noted that this product is fully made of guadua and because of its durability, should last about 10 years.
This wonderfully crafted napkin holder is the ideal ornament for every house and is the perfect excuse to be in contact with the nature. The groove is where the napkins are meant to go, and the accessory besides is to put the straws in.

 

The Group of family artisans, was born as a project of the Committee Socio-Cultural, tourist and environmental ASUALCAN in the year 2006. At the moment, there are three families whose
members work in workshops located in ASUALCAN facilities and in their homes.
