African Wax Fabric
One of the most famous fabrics in the world is African Wax fabric. Introduced in Africa two centuries ago that, the wax is derived from the Indonesian batik. Its uniqueness lies in its patterns, inspired by African customs.
Having always been a major component of a basket, the straw used for our products is harvested near swamps in Africa. Once dried, it is ready to be woven for a perfect result.
The plastic used for weaving baskets come from a recycling company. After a common effort in sorting the house garbage, the company work is to melt the plastic and add the necessary pigments for color.
At the end of production, we can ensure that the plastic used is made of 90% recycled and pigments (10%) plastic.
The wood used for the products is mainly from used pallets. Once arriving in Senegal, the pallets are dismantled, the boards are reworked to build solid structures stools.
This approach is consistent with our desire to be more environmentally friendly and eco-environment possible.
