Bread Warmer & Basket:
About This Handicraft
There’s nothing quite like the smell of warm bread on the weekend. Here, our terracotta plate has been engraved with a cute owl on a tree design and cut to fit neatly into a round basket.

Each product is designed and curated by Korissa, sustainably handmade by Fair Trade artisans in Bangladesh.

Who We Are
Kumiho co is an Oregon-based company that is focused on bringing attention to small North American artists and brands. We are passionate about providing modern, eco-friendly, and sustainable home décor.
Our name, Kumiho, was inspired by the Korean legend and folktale of the nine-tailed fox. The nine-tailed fox was known for its longevity and accumulation of energy. This is what we represent, creating a long-lasting relationship between artists and our website audience with the energy to curate products amongst this class of people.
Also, legend holds that the Kumiho is distinguished by its "yeo woo guseul" which consists of in-depth knowledge. This depicts our knowledge base in both the industry and in curating products for home décor.

In summary we:
