Indigenous Biak Papua artisans use coconuts to make exquisite, one-of-a-kind creations. Did you know that sustainable and circular designs have become fashionable again?
But more than simply a fad, when discussing the concept of sustainable design, we often think about reducing our environmental footprint. This involves minimizing the amount of waste produced and using environmentally-friendly materials. A circular design can be made using a variety of materials, but coconut is the most environmentally friendly. Coconut is a renewable resource, and it is easy to compost. Coconut also Conserves water, which is an important factor when it comes to creating a sustainable design. Coconut is a natural plastic, which is why it is a popular choice for sustainable designs.
This community and their ancestors have been part of such a craft. By preserving Indigenous craft, you are helping to reduce the amount of plastic that is produced, and you are also helping to reduce the amount of energy that is used in the process of creating a design.
