Ficus: an ecological material for modern uses

Ficus natalensis is a tree of the Moraceae family. It is commonly known as the Natal fig, or "Mutuba" to the locals. These trees are distributed from northeastern South Africa to Uganda and Kenya.

The bark of the tree is picked, without damaging the tree, to obtain an ecological and renewable material.

Skilled craftsmen work this unique material in many modern uses, including fashion, accessories, homewares, interior design and art.

Mutuba trees can be harvested annually for up to 40 years, individually producing up to 200 m2 of fabric.
