With Wooden Textiles buroBELÉN explores the unique character of a new type of material. The basis for this material is Tapa, a wooden cloth produced through an ancient and sustainable handicraft from Tonga. There, the tradition of tapamaking is still part of daily life. The Paper Mulberry trees grow fast, only need a little water and can be farmed without any chemicals or pesticides.
Depending on the future use, this Tapa is enriched by industrial techniques like embroidering and dyeing. This enrichment gives it novel and fascinating qualities for interior decoration and architecture.
