Palm Leaf Plate 24x16 cm or 9.5 x 6.25" rectangular Our Palm line of plates are made from the sheath of a palm tree, the part of the tree that is naturally shed as the tree grows. This sheath is then created into plates by hand by small family businesses. It is a renewable material that is light but extremely strong. The plates can be used in convection air and microwave ovens and are leak-proof. The markings on the plates are totally natural, and give the plates a very eco-friendly look.
