XUFA PROCESO

After the chufa is crushed to make the orxata, an important amount of waste is left aside. Chufa residues are usually left on the fields to serve as mold and fertilizer. Xufa Proceso aims to use some of this raw material for future design materials and daily objects, a way of achieving a sustainable and bio-degradable fabrication process. Partnering with local farmers and local orchateros, it reclaims Valencian heritage, betting on the many possibilities that new appropriations of the chufa waste can offer. The project develops a range of new materials and original textures, which will be turned into a collection of objects.
