The Cloth of Kings – the most ancient textile in the history of humanity wins ‘LAUNCH: Systems Challenge 2013′ | HELLO MATERIALS BLOG

2013 Award winning material, Bark Cloth, is here broadcasted by Editor Maria Hørmann from Hello Materials Blog. As her description is exactly what a dissection might read, this is how the Cloth of Kings is described:

“The material is cultivated from Mutuba trees (wild common fig; Ficus natalensis) on eco-certified farms in Uganda. It is 100 % plant fiber, an authentic organic “living” cloth at the interface between textiles and wood. The permanently renewable bark is harvested every year without felling the tree. One full piece of BARK CLOTH® is made from the bark of exactly one tree. Therefore, each cloth is a unique specimen, telling you it’s own particular story — a simple and timeless.”
