ORGANIC BARK TEXTILES
This innovative material is called "Barktex". It is a sustainable alternative for for instance leather, and  can be harvested every year from the bark of a tree in Uganda, that supports women communities. It has just been selected as one of the 10 top Innovators in the Nasa Challenge. The company will be involved in the Nasa Forum in California. Previously it has become a Unsco World Heritage material. It looks like leather. Here you see some examples, such as a detail of a shoe, but also "decowood" and "perspex laminated stripes and sprinkles". Another example is the bookcover made by textile artist Sonja Prillwitz, where you can see the sympathetic texture of the material and the characteristic scars. Sonja became inspired by the typical stitching in the cloth. Find out more about the material via Barktex in Germany.
