Asili x Citta Whittle Bowl
This Whittle Bowl is a collaboration between Città and Asili Design. The bowl is designed in our New Zealand studio by product designers Nikolai Sorensen and David Moreland. It's then skillfully hand-carved in Kenya by Asili.
The design celebrates the character of the woodgrain and the handmade nature of the manufacturing process. Each piece is carved from a single piece of reclaimed olive wood, exclusively selected for each bowl. The exterior grooves create a beautiful contrast with the smooth interior.
Hand-carved using traditional techniques passed down through generations. Produced within a fairtrade environment that supports the artisans, their families and communities in Western Kenya.
Hand wash only. Do not soak; wood is porous and will soak up water which may cause the wood to crack when it dries. Do not store in direct sunlight as this may cause warping and discolouration. Do not leave anything moist on your bowl for long periods of time as stains can develop. Wood is a natural product and will mark/burn in contact with high heat/flames.
