Starch Toothpicks - Korea

Toothpicks must be one of the most internationally recognisable yet overlooked table top items around.

Due to their consistency and translucency, these typical Korean toothpicks are often mistaken as plastic. They are actually made of corn starch and unlike their wooden or plastic counterparts, they disintegrate very quickly after disposal.

Simple, obvious yet low-key everyday items like this, reveal a little about their locality because they serve local needs and interests above design requirements. 

We really like Straight forward products with a purity of idea. Their down to earth simplicity that is refreshingly honest and appealing to us.
