Paper mulberry trees

So this is awesome shit on 16 different levels of awesome shit. This girl went out to the South Pacific island of TONGA on a hunt for innovative materials. Superwoman. During her search she documented the ancient craft of beating the bark of TREES. Paper Mulberry trees. Yes, people beat the bark with tiny bats and it turns into cloth. I think that is way cooler than any Harry Potter magic trick ever. Wood can totally be used as a textile. It can be washed, dyed, sewn, folded, it can be used for fashion or interiors.

and it is pretty beautiful.
