I loved the cause and it was the first time that I had heard of anything like it. So I purchased the teal one (the love of all things teal came years later). When I was writting this I went back to see what they had on the Worldstock at the O and saw they are back, you can get them for $24.99 at the following link Bamboo Vase (Vietnam), as of today they are saying sell out risk is very high.
