WASARA was born from a desire to design tableware that perfectly complements the dishes you serve, you can read on their website Wasara.jp. This tableware is crafted from molded pulp, commonly used in the packing industry. However, WASARA has been designed to use all tree-free materials. Bamboo and bagasse pulp is poured into molds, and then dehydrated under heat and pressure, which allows all different kinds of shapes and sizes to be produced without using any starch or glue.

Bamboo, which grows extremely fast and bagasse, a dry pulpy fibrous residue that remains after sugarcane stalks are crushed to extract their juice, build the main ingredients for the raw material. Approximately one hundred million tons of bagasse are produced every year. Since bagasse is softer and more pliable than wood pulp, the energy consumption for the production is significantly reduced. This tableware is fully compostable.
