One can find the beauty of nature in the trickling forest stream, the cascading river rapids, and our River Coconut Bowl.
Hear the soothing sound of the babbling river as you enjoy your meals in this coconut bowl. Carved around the coconut bowl are serpentine lines overlapping each other, like a stream smoothly flowing toward the heart of a tropical forest.
Apart from the skillfully carved patterns on the coconut bowl, another great thing about this bowl is that it supports the rural community in Vietnam. Because of the amazing talents of local artisans, the reclaimed coconut shells were transformed into the beautifully crafted River Coconut Bowl and all other Rainforest Bowls. Learn more about how our coconut bowls were reclaimed and created in the “How It’s Made” section below.
With a depth of around 3 inches, the River Coconut Bowl can hold up to 17 ounces of your meals or desserts. While eating out of this bowl, you can feel the carved wavy patterns in your fingers—a sensation that will take you to the rippling forest river.

Before using it for the first time, wash it in water at room temperature.
Do not wash with hot water or use with hot food or drinks.

Rehydrate it from time to time by polishing it with coconut oil.
Do not expose to extreme heat or use in the refrigerator, microwave, oven, or dishwasher.
How It’s Made
1. Harvest coconuts from sustainable sources in Vietnam
We built partnerships with Vietnamese farmers who promote sustainable farming practices. We also make sure that each coconut bowl you choose is as great as its original shell.
2. Remove the husk & juice, and cut the shell in half
Then, the local craftspeople remove the husk and bore holes to pour out the coconut juice. Next, they cut the shell in half and scrape off the coconut meat.
3. Sand the shell inside and out
With the use of sandpaper, the artisans sand and smooth the coconut shells’ edges and surfaces. Sanding these shells can reveal the naturally rich brown colors of our coconut bowls.
4. Get the bowl ready for use
Every coconut bowl is polished to perfection with coconut oil. Polishing the coconut bowl with oil can hydrate it and make it longer-lasting.
These bowls are stunning and fit my hands really well. They are fun to touch and to examine as they have so many unique details. Practically speaking, they hold salads, cold noodles, and snacks really well. Just remember to use cool water to wash and towel dry and they should hold up nicely. They are my go to bowls daily for everything that isn't hot. I love them.
I just love my new coconut bowl. I’m a clean as you go type person and I’ve now found that special bowl that can be used for everything from breakfast to dinner. It’s a great size big enough for a large salad or a big bowl of soup. Very easy to clean and it’s ready to use the next time I’m ready to eat. At 50 I’m starting over. Due to unfortunate events that were out of my control I lost my job, home and almost everything that was in it. I have very little but hope to find a place to live soon. I have a mug, my great-grandmother’s spoon and my extra long spoon for eating peanut butter. Now I have a really nice bowl that can be used for all sorts of things. Plus it’s helping the environment and the people who create these one of a kind bowls. Will certainly try to find a way to purchase other items that I need from this site.
Shipping was unbelievably fast and bowl was well packaged and marked fragile to avoid breakage.
Great bowls, fast shipping, great customer service! Won't find better.
Good size for serving soup with unpolished finish.
Great for my smoothie bowls! :)
