Sustainable plant material

Plant fibres like water hyacinth, seagrass, unbleached jute, abaca are selected as raw materials because they are sustainably sourced from local communal plantations but above all; they renew on their own, grow extremely quickly and uses no to limited pesticides. This makes them especially environmentally friendly. Did you know that some of these materials are considered as waste? The colour of the materials can vary per season or drying time which gives the products a lively shade.

Benefits of using sustainable plants as a raw material:

  • Limited or non-usage of pesticides and fertilisers are used to grow these plants
  • These plants grow very quickly (jute matures in 4.5 months vs 20 years for a teak tree)
  • No uprooting necessary (regenerates on its own)
  • High capacity of CO2 absorption and/or other toxins
  • Non industrialised materials sourcing process
