Areca leaf plates are manufactured from fallen areca leaves which are spread throughout India and a few other Asian countries. The purpose of these trees are to harvest areca nuts, also called betel nuts which are the main component of “paan”, a mildly stimulating preparation chewed in India and other southern parts of Asia. The preparation majorly consists of betel leaves, slaked lime, and tobacco. Whilst people do relish this combination of nature’s stimulants, areca leaves are used to make beautiful and nature-friendly tableware.
The reason you should prefer areca leaf plates, like the ones made by Leaf Basket is that they are completely made from fallen leaves of the areca tree. This way, the tree still survives happily and the dead leaves are used for a good cause. These plates are completely heat and waterproof, which translates to better durability and peace of mind while consuming any kind of food. The leaves themselves have a very sturdy nature hence, any kinds of bonds or glue are exempted from being used during the manufacture of Leaf Basket tableware.
Areca leaves have been used for hundreds of years now because of their availability and easily disposable nature in India. Approximately 7,50,000 acres of Areca plantation in India make sure that there’s never a scarcity of fallen leaves.
The manufacturing process of areca leaf plates is also quite easy. It involves gathering and storing the leaves, which are then washed and sun-dried. Then these leaves are pressed by a machine that makes these plates and stacked for sale. As simple as that. No chemical processing or dipping into unknown liquids so you can have your food in absolute peace of mind.
Areca leaves are used to make plates mainly but due to the demand in the market, but are also used in making several other dinnerware like bowls, spoons, food trays, and many more. So, the next time you decide to have a party or have a few guests over, don’t forget to get Leaf Basket tableware because they not only are better than your regular dinnerware in many ways but save you from a trip to buy fertilizers for your garden.
