Koura - David Trubridge

$585.00 GST inc.

“Koura is the Maori name for the small fresh water shrimps that live in our rivers. They curl up in this shape. This shape is mirrored again in the similar woven traps used for catching them. Our kitsets significantly reduce freighting, which is one of our ways of doing what we can to help preserve our beautiful sea and land environments.” - David Trubridge

The Koura comes in six sizes with bamboo plywood as the main material which can be all Natural or Caramel as priced above, or painted on one side, plus double-sided Black or White thus creating a selection of different options.

Please note that David Trubridge is currently phasing out the Natural Plywood finish and transitioning to only Caramel as the base finish. Coloured finishes will continue as paint on Caramel as opposed to the original paint on Bamboo. For this reason, some sizes are no longer available in the Natural finish.

Natural Bamboo, Caramel, Red, Lime, Aqua, Blue, Pink, Orange, White, Black 


The Koura pendant is made from sustainably sourced natural bamboo plywood. The caramel bamboo starts out as natural and is carbonised using steam to caramelise the natural sugars which darken the bamboo. This process creates a different look without the use of chemicals. For the colour selections an acrylic low VOC (volatile organic compound) paint is used.
