Natural materials

Natural materials are great for the environment as the natural resource can replenish itself generation after generation. After harvesting and sometimes with the help of recurring processes, the resource will grow back by itself over time and can be harvested again. This makes renewable materials one of the most sustainable choices around.

Cork

Cork is the bark of the self-regenerating cork oak tree. It is ranked among the most durable organic materials with the property of stabilising the air temperature and humidity. It is a very flexible material and be treated in a simple natural way. It has good adhesive properties, making it easy to use in combination with different materials. In general the cork industry is regarded as one of the most environmental friendly. Cork is 100% natural and biodegradable.

Cotton

Cotton is one of the most widely used types of natural fibres around the world to produce fabrics. The process starts at the cotton plant, where the soft, fluffy fibres wrap around the seeds. These fibres are collected and are then spun into yarn or thread to create soft, breathable and durable textile fabric.

Cotton fabrics are extremely durable and resistant to abrasion. The production of cotton is inherently non-impactful on the environment, since it comes from a natural fibre and is biodegradable.

Jute

Jute is a long, soft and shiny bast fibre made from the jute plant that can be spun into strong threads.

Jute is the name of the plant or fiber used to make burlap, hessian or gunny cloth. After cotton, jute is the second most used natural fibre for textiles in the world and also one of the most affordable ones. Because jute is a completely natural plantbased fibre, it is biodegradable and will leave zero impact on the environment.

Wood

Wood is an organic material coming from stems and roots of trees and other plants that can be found all over the world. This strong, natural and renewable resource is therefore one of the most commonly used natural materials for construction, tools and to create consumer products.

Because of its composition it is very strong and durable. With careful management of forests and enviromental protection, the natural and renewable traits of wood make it a great sustainable material.

Oak

Oak wood is a type of hardwood coming from the oak tree. It is strong, heavy and durable. The noticable grain pattern make the oak wood easy to recognize. Oak trees can be found all over the world, making this natural and renewable material available in abundance. The trees can grow to a great size, giving a high yield of wood per tree.

Because of its longevity and durability, items made from oak will last a lifetime, reducing the need for replacement. The production of oak also requires no chemical treatment or other harmful industrial processes, making it a very ecofriendly solution.

Bamboo

Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants (grass) and it can replenish itself within a year with minimum water needs and without the need of fertilisers to boost its growth. Since bamboo is naturally pest-resistant there is no usage of pesticides. Bamboo is a very renewable resource, strong and durable. It absorbs CO2 from the air and releases oxygen which improves the air quality. Bamboo is 100% natural and biodegradable.

Ceramics

Ceramic products have been used for many thousands of years already. Ceramic drink-/ tableware is manufactured using stoneware, earthenware or porcelain.

The material is diluted with water until it becomes liquid and after it is casted into plaster molds and placed in high temperature oven. Ceramic is a hard, brittle, heatresistant and corrosion-resistant material, making it ideal for every day products. It can be recycled and reused in multiple form.
