Barktex plus Latex
- story by MaterialDistrict
Barktex Plus Latex is Barktex (reinforced bark fibre textile) with a natural latex coating, which gives it a strongly alienated surface and surprising grip. Naturalness with an artificial charm. The additions of latex increases the tear-, abrasion-, and water-resistancy.
Barktex is refined Bark Cloth, which has undergone a metamorphosis. Bark Cloth is 100% plant fiber cloth at the interface between textile and wood. It is cultivated from Mutuba trees (Ficus natalensis) on their eco-certified farms in Uganda.
