Cotton Cutlery Pouch:
This Cutlery Pouch is handmade and hand embroidered here in the UK by me with 100% natural undyed Cotton. The Bamboo embroidery pattern adds a bit of charm to the bag.
These bags have a practical size (10.2 in x 2.4in) and are very versatile, they can be used to carry zerowaste utensils such as cutlery and straws, but also used for other purposes such as a pencil or toothbrush case, or even to hold knitting needles.
Having these little pouches is the perfect solution to keep all your zero waste bits you have collected together, clean, dry and safe in your bag.
You can add bamboo cutlery and a bamboo straw and cleaning brush in the drop down options. Or simply buy the roll, and fill it yourself.
* we always encourage people to use what they already have, so if you have suitable on the go cutlery already or straw already, you can always use those with your pouch.
Bamboo Straws: .
Avoid adding to the already devastating amount of plastic straws being sent to landfill, our oceans and harming our beautiful marine and wildlife everyday, by adding an amazing 100% natural reusable 20cm bamboo straw to your roll.
You can click to include a set of bamboo cutlery, including a fork, knife (with serrated blade), and spoon. The absolute perfect plastic free alternative to single use cutlery for food on the go.
Taking Care of Your Bamboo Straws & Cutlery:
After each use it is important to clean and dry your straws and cutlery, to make sure they last. If you are drinking water or a soft drink, straws can be simply rinsed with luk warm water and a small drop of washing up liquid. If using your straws for a thicker drink such as a smoothie, use a drop of washing up liquid on a straw cleaning brush which can be purchased separately on this site, to make sure no bits get left inside of your straw. Cutlery can be simply wiped down after use, and washed at a later time.
Always let your bamboo straws & cutlery dry fully. I place mine in a clean and dry glass jar without the lid on, and not overcrowded with other straws & cutlery.
Store your straws & cutlery in a well-ventilated place, and never in air-tight sealed containers.
Our bamboo straws & cutlery are made to last a long time, but if for any reason you wish to dispose of your straws & cutlery you will be happy to know they are 100% compostable and biodegradable, returning back to raw natural materials very quickly.
Important Information- Bamboo Straws:
As these straws are natural, each one is unique, just like you, varying slightly in colour shade and width. See picture three for an example of how varied the straw widths can be.
The coloured thread used to embroider the cactus design is 100% cotton, but as this cotton was donated and collected from various sources it isn’t possible to verify if the cotton is organic or dyed with natural plant dyes. As the donated supplies run out, I will replace them with eco-friendly dyed organic thread. For now I would like to use up whats available to me to stop more products going to waste.
It is possible to have a cutlery pouch made without an embroidery pattern on it if you prefer. Please just get in touch.

As each bag is handmade, they are all slightly unique, just like you. Sometimes a bag may be slightly wider or longer, and the embroidery design may be in a slightly different place to on the picture on the bag. We believe this makes them all the more special.
