Core Bamboo Vases

Bamboo. Nature's favored prison building material/hammock/pungee stick. But there are uses for it besides those you've seen in old Hong Kong films; for example, you can shape it into a vase and sell it on Woot. I know, I know, it sounds farfetched. But look below; I can prove it!

I'm just hanging out, really.

Can you put water in them? Will they leak? I can't find that information anywhere.

I e-mailed corebamboo customer service.

Our vases are not meant to hold water. They are meant for dried flowers and other decorative accessories.



so...I guess no water. at least to be safe!
