why is it more sustainable?
Provence Platter is a tray made recycling wood from disassembled oak wine barrels.
Barrels are sourced from caves in France and California. After four wine seasons, oak barrels lose their ability to release scents to wine. This is when they’re purchased by Provence Platter and turned into trays. Trays are coated with food-safe beeswax and iron handles are forged by hand in Provence Platter workshop in Brooklyn.
To treasure and highlight the first life of this wood, its identification marks are preserved. This includes barrel producers’ names and the LT, MT, HT labels, that indicate the degree of wood toasting. Wine stains are also often visible on the back of the platters.
