These products are manufactured of recycled agricultural natural fibres including straw fibres and coconut-fibres, combined by bio-resins. The natural fibres are combined separately with the bio-resins and casted in custom-designed moulds to achieve the final wave-form pattern needed. Different wave designs were applied: once with different colour patterns and once through applying the natural fibres’ original colours as a main bio-design aspect within the final product’s outcome. The products can be used in non-structural facade cladding systems and in interior-claddings. The STRAWave panels are around 400 x 400 mm and were manufactured within the (Do-It-Yourself) and the (Handmade Agri-tecture) Architectural Workshops supervised by Dr.-Ing. Hanaa Dahy, at itke- University of Stuttgart.“
