Ekobo Bamboozle!

A great design from Ekobo. The new range of "Multifaceted Organisers" made from bamboo, available in 2 sizes and in a variety of beautiful colours: smoke, tomato, mandarin, lime, white and black. They are the perfect place to store your utensils or anything else for that matter!
Ekobo, based in France, combine their wonderful contemporary designs with a lovely ethical way of working. Bruno Louis and his wife Boo (with the help of other product designers) have developed a range now 250 products strong all made from 100% bamboo + 200% design and available in eye-popping zingy colours! Working alongside over 100 families from bamboo villages in Vietnam, Ekobo work directly with the local craftsmen, cutting out middlemen and resulting in well paid artisans and carefully monitored working conditions. Brilliant.
