hold the vision, trust the process
'' All the trees are losing their leaves, and not one of them is worried ''
Ilai's contribution to a circular economy
The manufacturing process does not require cutting or damage to the trees. The production process is natural and environmentally friendly and chemically free from beginning to end. Our disposable items are made of palm and sage leaves which are naturally hidden and harvested by local farmers in India. The leaves are then transported by the farmers to our workplace through sea freight. The leaves are then collected, sorted and cleaned with water. There are no chemicals or additives used throughout the manufacturing process. The leaves are then heated in various forms. Several plates, bowls and spoons can be made from a single areca palm leaf - it hardly means waste!. The final result is a refined but earthy natural work that will complement every meal.
