NOMNOM / Bio-coated cutlery


NomNom is an ecological cutlery set. A coating makes it more durable than conventional eco-alternatives and allows it, to clean and re-use the cutlery several times. All objects are completely plant-based and 100% biodegradable.
The innovation of NomNom lies in its surface: a purely biological coating of plant waxes makes the objects water-resistant. It also gives the material a much smoother surface. The wax infiltrates deep into the wood pores and seals the surface permanently.
