A while back we rounded up some of our favorite Plastic-Free Lunch Boxes. We just discovered another reusable container to add to the list, and it might be the most beautiful one of all.
This portable food container, called a rantang in Indonesian, is similar in style to an Indian tiffin. Three stacking bowls keep food separated, and a handle makes them easy to carry. But instead of the usual metal or plastic containers, this design from Jenggala Keramik Bali is made with ceramic and recycled teak wood. What a great way to bring a little elegance to the workday lunch – or to elicit oohs and ahhs at a picnic!
The Jenggala Rantang is about $40; contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Additional information about Jenggala Keramik Bali may be found at their website and Facebook page.
