"These plates are the best. I've been searching for the perfect eco-friendly plate for forever. The ones I've found are either tacky or look nice but wreck havoc on the environment. I love maaterra because they look sophisticated, and they don't hurt the earth."

Setting Expectations

Our eco-friendly plates are harvested from fallen leaves. We minimize our processing by using heat, steam, and pressure to clean and mold maaterra plates.

We use the center portion of the leaf for consistency in tone and thickness but also appreciate that no two maaterra plates are identical. Imperfectly perfect markings and textures are as natural and varied as the earth from which they came.
