Description
Bark Cloth® is a traditionally produced bast fiber from Uganda and the historical precursor of modern nonwoven textiles. It is probably the oldest textile in the history of humanity. This fast regrowing material can be harvested yearly. Knotholes give rise to openings in the Bark Cloth®, which are closed with patches and seams. This, originally technical required, procedure has since come to be a stylistic application and can be utilized for surface structure designs. Bark Cloth® is available with or without patches and/or seams. Bark Cloth® eco is the only worldwide certified Bark Cloth® from controlled organic cultivation (EUStandard 2092/91). The production takes place according to the guidelines of the ILO (International Labor Organization) and SA 8000. Standards for Bark Cloth® production are controlled through an elaborate certification process by a German IFOAM (International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements)-accredited certification company.
