These cool nesting bowls are soft and beautiful cotton and are great for storing things so they are cushioned overnight or on display. They 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. They can also be worn as hats, on you or your cat! They 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 them for these bowls are lovely and will add a handmade touch of beauty to your decor! They will last a long time. I stand by the quality of my workmanship, and welcome you to please contact me with questions or comments!
