About our repurposed materials
WHY DO WE REPURPOSE NATURAL WASTE?
Through the processing of food, beverages, and other products that use natural materials, a lot of waste is created. Whether it be the discarded rice husks from the production of rice, or coconut husk from the production of coconut milk, all of these natural materials would go to landfill, creating unnecessary waste and possibly causing ecological issues if not properly discarded or repurposed. This is why we pride ourselves on utilising natural bi-products from mass produced materials.
WHAT IS RICE HUSK?
Rice husk is the outer shell of a grain of rice. A natural, paper-like material that is discarded during the production of rice for consumption.
WHAT IS COCONUT HUSK?
Coconut husk, otherwise known as coconut shells, is the thick outer casing of the coconut fruit. Grown naturally on coconut trees.
WHAT IS COCONUT WOOD?
Our coconut wood is sources from coconut trees that no longer bear fruit. Their trunks are cut, and carefully repurposed into our hand carved, wood homewares.
WHAT IS COFFEE HUSK?
Coffee husk, also known as coffee chaff - is the green, external casing of the coffee bean. It’s removed for coffee production, creating mass quantities of natural pollution.
