BARKTEX® is a contemporary take on traditional bark cloth, which is produced in a sustainable way from the Ugandan Ficus tree. Bark Cloth is the basis for a wide range of BARKTEX® textiles and composites which are manufactured with low energy and water consumption, a carbon footprint less than zero, and a minor capital intensive process based on culturally aligned, socio-economically and ecologically suitable conditions. Once the bark is stripped from the tree, new bark grows in its place – a truly sustainable product.
