Leaf Coffeecup Cover

Thai traditional culture of wrapping food with leaf interested me.Cutting part of tree did not destroy them but let new part to bloom and can become good design that easily bring us close to nature.I think most people like coffee. It becomes today culture.Hot coffee use cover to prevent your hand from the heat.
I combine design with function by using withered leaf to cover the coffee cup instead of paper.Some tree leafs have flexibility and can bend with the shape of coffee cup without tearing.The color of leafs are vary and not boring and can make the strength point to the café. Beside,dry leaf has cost less than,paper and biodegradable too.
