funfam dining sets for kids

table manners set

funfam is a japanese company specializing in producing bamboo dishes and cutlery for children. the company’s solid bamboo designs are made by artisans and aim to buck the trend of throw-away culture. the mission is to give small children a grounding in japanese tradition beginning with their eating utensils. the pieces are made by a small 64 year old furniture manufacturer based in tokyo. the sets are all made from bamboo because of its fast growth and minimal environmental impact. there are a variety of configurations available including western utensils, chopsticks and even lunch boxes. each set is printed with icons to help children learn how to eat healthy and which utensils to use when.

  • Just wonder, if these light weights went inside a dihwasher, one used in a school, wouldn´t they be thrown about? And separating the forks for storage, differing so slightly, would be harder.
    It works in smaller scale than. Nice.
