The outer layers are made with Pupunha Veneer, which uses waste from the sustainable palm heart agro industry. It is the result of technological advance of the Pupunha Plywood. The core of composite is made of 2 materials: the Organic Mosso Bambu, 3-ply, grown and produced in Brazil and agro toxic free and a material composed by 70% of natural fibers – jute, malva and curauá (considered as the natural substitute of fiberglass) – and 30% of post production recycled polypropylene.
