How leaf plates are made (See Video)
Collection: Nepalese villagers collect the Sal leaves from the surrounding areas. The leaves are sustainably collected by hand without killing the trees.
Stitching: They are washed then bamboo fibres are used to stitch the leaves together before being dried.
Pressing: Using a hydraulic press, the layers of stitched leaves are pressed together to create the product which keeps its shape thanks to the natural oils and robustness of the Sal leaves.
Finishing: Once the bowls and plates have been machine pressed into shape the edges are cut and the bowls are ready to be packed.
