How strong are palm leaf plates?

Trackback |      [pinit]

We often get asked just how strong and durable our palm leaf plates are.  After all, how tough can they be?  They’re made from leaves!

The answer is: very strong. 


The above is a photo of one of our palm leaf plates, held only between thumb and forefinger on one side and piled high with grilled corn.

This is the perfect situation for the plate to buckle, and, as you can see, it hasn’t.

    I’d like to add that they are not only strong, but hold sauces VERY well! They are a cross between a plate and a bowl, so you don’t have to worry about the juice from your steak spilling off when you walk around at the backyard bbq.
