“The very poor man in India eats his meal of a banana leaf. A little higher in the scale is a low-fired earthenware dish, a tali. Then a glazed tali, then brass, then bell bronze, or polished marble, which are both very handsome – then to show you can do better than that you get into things that are rather questionable: silver plate, solid silver, presumably even gold. But there are some superior men – with not only means but understanding, and probably some spiritual training as well – who will go a step further and eat off a banana leaf.” Charles and Ray Eames
