Surmach / tradition revive


Surmach is a machine which produces Kajal in a massive and reformed way of traditional ones. According to statistics, there is a huge fascination with cosmetic products, especially in East Asia. Although most of these products contain toxic chemical substances, which may cause unconvenient health and planet problems. So Surmach is designed to revive not only the ancient nutritious kajal; but also the way they make it! Now as a modern version, still the way they make it is simple, perceivable by rural, mass-produced, and automatic at the same time.
