These 4.5" Bamboo Knot Picks are made from natural bamboo and feature a unique knotted head design. They are perfect for use with hors d'oeuvres or appetizers and can also be used to enhance the look of beverages and garnishes. These bi-colored picks are more durable than traditional wood or plastic picks and are eco-friendly. Bamboo products are made from the part of the plant called the sheath. The sheath is the protective outer layer of the bamboo's culm that grows in young plants. When the plant has matured, the sheath falls off and is collected, cleaned, and boiled. Once the sheath has been laminated it is then pressed and bonded into the desired shape. This process is completely eco-friendly and does not involve the use of chemicals or toxins. Featuring a sleek design, these picks are a wonderful eco-friendly option.
