We’ve considered adding a special “tag” for eco-friendly or wooden cutlery but let’s be honest, wood cutlery is here to stay and will or is a part of our flatware experience from here on in. Our prediction is that the top three cutlery materials in the future will be: #1 – Metal, #2 – Wood and #3 – Not plastic.
The Antrader eco friendly wood cutlery set really has the old school design esthetic which we really like. This utensil set for four people includes: 4 Spoons & 4 Forks. They have nice long handles (9″ long) with black and brown jute string wrapped around them.
Of course these won’t do well in the dishwasher so they have an interesting recommendation: “It can put on disinfecting cabinet to use Ozone to sterilize. it can’t heated by microwave. Avoid exposuring directly. Do not leave the product immerse in water or other liquids for a long time.”
And as for care and maintenance: “The first time you use it, we suggest soak the utensils into salt water for half an hour, it would be better for the utensils. Wood oil, plant oil or wax oil suggested to be occasionally applied to extend the life and beauty of products.”

Love those colours! Which have an interesting back story:
“In January, 1936. FIESTA was the creation of Frederick Hurten Rhead, a second generation Stoke-on-Trent potter who had become Homer Laughlin’s design director in 1927. FIESTA was an immediate hit with the public and, by it’s second year of production, more than one million pieces were produced. The original five colors were Red, Yellow, Cobalt Blue, Green and Ivory. Turquoise was added early in 1937. The shapes of FIESTA were created in an Art Deco style with concentric circles highlighting the bright colors. The first six colors were produced through the 1930’s and 40’s until a change in fashion direction dictated a change to a softer palette of pastel colors at the beginning of the 1950’s. Color trends moved back to brighter colors in the early 1960’s and FIESTA moved with the trend. At the end of 1972, FIESTA was retired after 37 years of production. The retired dinnerware line soon became popular with collectors, especially those who had childhood memories of this brightly colored dinnerware. As years passed, the value of the original FIESTA colors and pieces grew as more people became avid collectors. Over the next twenty years, new colors have been introduced and FIESTA has become a trendsetter of color for the housewares industry. In the seventy years since FIESTA was first produced, there have been a total of 38 colors in the line. Today, Homer Laughlin introduces one new color each year and FIESTA has become the leading dinnerware brand in casual tabletop, as well as a consistent leader in bridal registries across America. All the while, collectors have continued to add to the dinnerware to which they were first introduced by their mothers and grandmothers. Today, FIESTA dinnerware is the most collected dinnerware in the history of the tabletop industry with well over one half billion pieces produced.”
