Snowflake

Ornament by Moya

Why is it sustainable?

Snowflake is a hanging ornament made of untreated birch bark. Natural materials are generally a good choice in sustainable design, but how they're sourced also makes a huge difference.⁣ At Moya, they harvest birch bark only once a year and just take the outer bark layer, thus making sure the trees are not damaged.⁣
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.
