Why is it sustainable?
Abaca is a side table whose legs are shaped out of reclaimed wood and its top is made of Abaca leaves. Abaca is a species of banana tree native to the Philippines, whose leaves are sun dried and then woven as ropes.
All Original Home products are handmade by artisans living in rural areas, mainly Indonesia and Bangladesh (this stool is made in Java, Indonesia). Providing local people with job opportunities and ensuring good work conditions improves living conditions for entire villages.
