One of a Kind. According to Cospring, each of these wooden bowls is made from one piece of Jujube wood, which gives each bowl a naturally unique look with distinct wood grain patterns. No two are ever alike. 

What We Liked

These wooden bowls from Cospring are among the smaller options here, with each bowl measuring just over four inches in diameter and about two and a half inches tall. To keep them in good shape, these bowls do require a bit more care than some of the other options: they should be hand-washed and never put in the microwave. Buy Now!
