Frequently Asked Questions-
What is Bloomware made of?
Bloomware is made of bamboo fibre which is bamboo plant that has been ground into a powder or fibre. Bloomware is actually made from bamboo bi-products which means when other bamboo products are produced, what’s leftover is used to make our beautiful bowls, plates, spoons and cups.
This powder is mixed with a non-toxic, 100 % food grade binding resin then moulded into our signature bloomware shapes. These are then heated and polished and voila! Your beautiful Bloomware goodies are ready for meal time.
Bloomware products are BPA, formaldehyde and phthalate free as well as being FDA & SGS approved.

Where is Bloomware made?
Despite our best efforts to source a supplier within Australia, to our knowledge manufacturing of this sort is not carried out here. Bloomware products are manufactured both in Bangladesh and China by two family run businesses. We are certainly on the lookout for our manufacturing to be brought closer to home and would love to hear from anyone who can help us with this!
In selecting our manufacturers we ensured both have stringent safety and hygiene practices as well as a guaranteed rate of pay which is above the award for all of their employees.
Will you be releasing any new colours?
For now, our signature colours are those featured on our website and have been curated specifically to suit all ages and genders as well as styling choices within your home! If there is a colour you’re dying to see, definitely let us know as we take these requests into consideration for future product releases.
Can I purchase products on their own rather than in the set or mix and match colours?
At the moment our products are only available for purchase as a full set and each colour must be purchased separately. If these requests are something our customers are interested in we will be happy to look into it so feel free to get in touch.
