In 2014 I crossed paths with wonderful artisants in Southeast Asia who were treating teak leaves.  We discussed ideas and tried concepts to create timeless useful sustainable versatil bags we can treasure for years to come. Here what we came up with.

Our TRAVEL SET´s includes two bags, (17.5 x 13 x 3.5 cm) & (26 x 20.5 x 4.5 cm)

For the nature of our products each item is unique. Color and design varies from leaf to leaf. Ellen is the original color the teak leaf gets when dry. All others are colored with natural, chemical-free pigments.  The color of you item may differ from a lighter to a darker tone from the one pictured on your screen but in essence it maintains the core color value. Thank you for your understanding.

Our artisans pick-up dry leaves, soak them in water for several days to help them become soft. Then add natural pigment, if color other than beige or green are needed. After, they hand place one leaf at the time on a large deckle. We cover them and press them with a heavy stone for several days to help them dry and attach flat to one-another. When dry we have a paper-like thin leaf sheet, which we waterproof and later hand cut to create our one-of-a-kind products
