This small green and mustard handwoven Bamboo Container is known as ‘Dhey-zin' and is handcrafted and made in Bhutan by traditionally-skilled artisans. Indigenously produced in rural Bhutan, the diamond-patterned storage container is made of fine strips of Tula, a type of bamboo, which are pre-dyed using vegetable inks produced at home. Its veritable display of magical colours, beautiful symmetrical patterns and intricate designs are symbolic of the Bhutanese society.


The handwoven container consists of two halves, one half that is slighly larger (9cm) sits over the other smaller half (8.5cm) and squeezed together to close. It can be used to hold coins, keys, jewellery or even snacks that you can easily carry around. There is no limitation to what you can use it for.  With its intricate patterns and meticulous construction, this cute handmade bamboo container showcases the ingenuity of Bhutanese craftsmanship.
