This soft and beautiful cotton bowl is great for storing jewelry so it is cushioned overnight or on display. It can also be used on a desk for storing electronics (mp3 player, phone, flash drive) within safe and easy reach... Or for coins and other pocket contents as you come in the door. It can also be worn as a hat, on you or your cat! It can be smushed in a bag for traveling, then unfolded and used to hold jewelry or watches etc. on your nightstand in a hotel. Whatever you decide to use it for this bowl is lovely and will last a long time. I stand by the quality of workmanship, and welcome you to please contact me with questions or comments!
