MUTUBA PROJECT | BARK CLOTH HARVESTED FROM UGANDA

Editions exhibited at IMM Cologne in Germany. The fabric is harvested from the permanently renewable bark of the East African fig tree which is also known as the Mutuba tree. It is harvested every year without felling the tree and has a naturally occurring fibrous structure which resembles woven bast fibre.
