Yes, you read that correctly. Homeware, from fruit. That’s exactly what Melbourne based design duo Mathery have created, using fruit skins.
Currently on sale on their Fruit Wares include a banana skin bowl, an avocado skin vase, an orange skin canister and melon skin coasters:
They are entirely handmade pieces – the duo carefully cut the fruit skins into geometric shapes that they then moulded into functional homewares that are entirely eco-friendly. As well as being green (quite literally!) they are certainly real conversation pieces!
If you’re taken by them there are currently no UK stockists although they do offer free shipping to the UK (although posting them from Australia to the UK may well negate the environmentally friendly aspects of the vases).
What do you think of them? Would you have one in your home?
