Soraya's Note: Add a small touch of Colombia to your home with our fruit bowl, known in Spanish as "frutero." Our fruit bowl is 100% handmade in Colombia using the natural fiber known as “iraca.” Iraca is a tropical palm native to Colombia that can grow up to 3 meters (10ft) tall and can take up to 3 years to reach maturity which then help shape many crafts. Designed with a round base and petal inspired edges, our fruit bowl can hold anything from your bananas, apples and oranges. Its the perfect addition to your kitchen or it makes for the perfect housewarming gift.
