Bamboo cutlery are perfect for eating on the go.

Yes, the cutlery is as safe for children to use as any other cutlery. If your child knows how to eat with cutlery, they will have no problem using bamboo cutlery.
Yes, you can use your bamboo cutlery with most food.
Knife: is sharp enough to cut cooked vegetables, meat or most other food.
Spoon: It is the same size as a regular tablespoon.
Fork: is sharp enough to spear cooked vegetables, meat and other food.
Straw: wide enough to drink smoothies or other beverages with it.
The bamboo cutlery is sanded down and varnished with vegetable oil. Therefore, it is smooth to the touch and splinter-free.
Bamboo has no wooden aftertaste and doesn't affect the taste of the food, unlike wooden cutlery that can leave a bad taste in your mouth when consuming food.
Carrying your own personal cutlery is hygienic and can help to solve the plastic crisis. If everyone had their own bamboo lunch set they didn't have to worry about finding a spoon for their soup at lunchtime and employers don't have to worry about buying more cutlery while mysteriously going missing.
Wash & Care
Bamboo cutlery can be cleaned with hot, soapy water like metal cutlery.
The natural way to clean cutlery is with vinegar. Add three tablespoons to one cup of water and wipe it off with a cloth afterwards. If a food odour persists, rub it down with a piece of lemon.
Bamboo cutlery is dishwasher safe.
Maintenance - Like other wood products in your kitchen, bamboo needs to be oiled periodically with olive oil or food-grade mineral oil. Food-grade mineral oil is available in most grocery stores. Just use a soft cloth to wipe your utensils with the oil. These days, most food contains oil, so this only needs to be done about every 2–3 months or when it feels dry.
To prolong your bamboo cutlery's life, avoid submerging it in water for an extended period.
The string bag
We use 80% hemp, and 20% recycled cotton. Hemp cotton is more durable than regular cotton. Plus, it only uses 1/20 of the water used to grow and process regular cotton. Hemp is far more sustainable than cotton, but you get a softer and more flexible material that extends the bag life by combining the two.

Why origami packaging?
That is a good question. The simple answer is that we cut down on standard packaging (box) and plastic wrap by 80%, and we believe we still have something sustainable and beautiful to present our products.
The packaging acts as a wrapping, offering a double-sided label space for a message, which removes the need for gift wrap.
Add a product to the shopping basket and tap the cart icon (top right). Enter a message or request a specific delivery date in the text box. It's that simple!
We will hand-write the message on our sustainable kraft paper gift cards and post it directly to the address of your choice.
Production & Impact
My Little Panda Products are designed by British Students. Design the next product, Take part
Bamboo is considered a pest in the western world, and there are no farmers currently growing bamboo in the UK or Europe. A family-owned factory in Vietnam manufactures our bamboo products. When ready, they ship them in bulk to the UK via sea freight, which produces 80% less CO2 than flying.
The Olive Cutlery is manufactured in Italy, while the Tongue Scraper and blades are manufactured in India. The cutlery engraving, the pouches and string bags are made in the UK.
My little Panda products are assembled in the UK to make sure that all of our products adhere to British manufacturing and production standards, we offer employment opportunities to stay-at-home-parents, OAPs, and those who are less mobile, so that they can work to a timeframe that suits them. We deliver the products to assemble, directly to their door for ease. When the products are asseble we collect. For enquiries about working for us, contact us.
