Since its creation in 2003, EKOBO continues its mission to be a pioneer in eco-design. Long-devoted to improving the way we engage with people and our planet, we believe that going green is not a marketing trend, but rather a commitment to constantly evolve our products by pursuing the most innovative design and manufacturing solutions available today.
Designed for everyday use, at home, or on the move, BIOBU [by EKOBO] offers an alternative to traditional plastic, disposable or fragile dishware and other home accessories. To extend the life of our products (a sustainable practice), we’ve combined biodegradable bamboo fibre, a highly-renewable natural resource, with a 100% food-grade melamine binder.
Ekobo’s handmade lacquer collection champions and protects the ancient knowhow and competence of village craftsmen. Each product is passed between two specialised villages in Vietnam: one hand cuts and shapes the bamboo, the other is expert in traditional lacquerware techniques. This meticulous and skilled process can take 45-60 days depending on the complexity of the product.
