Eggshell thin and with a graceful design, Wasara paper plates, bowls, and tumblers are a rarity: disposable tableware that looks stunning on the table. Designed by a Japanese firm and made from a blend of renewable bamboo shoots, reed pulp, and bagasse (plant fiber that’s leftover when sugar cane is processed into sugar), the luminous, eggshell-thin paper feels lovely in the hand, like you’re holding a piece of fine pottery. A matching set of bamboo utensils have a notch that lets them firmly grip the edges of the plates and bowls—a boon for when you need to set your fork down between bites at a party. And best of all, each item is 100% compostable.
