EXTINCTION IS FOREVER AND YOU JUST DID YOUR PART!!!

TOGETHER, WE KEEP A TRADITION ALIVE, the traditional way of weaving, vegetable fibers like RAFFIA, SWEETGRASS, SEAGRASS, STRAW, using the flat-plaited technique can be energy, time and money consuming compared to the industrial one, making handwoven items difficult to market. Nowadays, less and less locals trend to use the traditional method to craft which leads to the EXTINCTION OF A MILLENIAL TRADITION.

TOGETHER WE CONTRIBUTE TO MOTHER EARTH RENAISSANCE!!! All fibers are sourced from vegetable materials which are 100% NATURAL, therefore biodegradable, Harvested at just the right time to get the proper color, flexibility, and strength, fibers extraction allows FOREST REGENERATION and MAINTENANCE.

Together We Contribute To
