Why is it sustainable?
Snowflake is a hanging ornament made of untreated birch bark.
Natural materials are often a good choice in sustainable design, but how they're sourced makes a huge difference.
At Moya, birch bark is harvested only once a year and just taking the outer bark layer, thus making sure the trees are not damaged.
Moya was founded with the aim of reinterpreting traditional Siberian skills with a modern twist.
Although this is meant to be a Christmas ornament, Snowflake would generally be a beautiful décor for winter. This also suggests an alternative and more sustainable way of decorating for Christmas: one that doesn't rely on pieces that need to be stored away after the holidays.
