100% Biodegradable Natural Dental Floss

100% Biodegradable Natural Dental Floss

Flossing is important for overall oral hygiene. Most dentists will recommend flossing on a daily basis. Until now flossing also created a lot of useless plastic waste, here is a better option where you can add flossing to your daily oral care without harming the environment. Our floss dispenser is fully made of stainless steel, which means you can reuse for a long time and simply purchase the floss refills whenever needed. Besides the reusable floss dispenser, the floss refills are 100% bio based-plastic, derived from corn starch with a refreshing peppermint touch. This floss is suitable for vegans, but not fully compostable in your backyard compost.

Iraca Palms

Iraca Palms

There are multiple techniques used in weaving Iraca Palm. The coil technique takes the palm stalk and bundles about 6-7 pieces per row.  The Iraca Palm is then wrapped around them creating various colours and patterns. As the palm is wrapped around the leaf stalk the artisan begins to coil or create a circle with the material. To join the various layers together they use a needle, and with the same palm “sew” they put a stitch every few inches to hold the layers together.  There is also a wire frame technique by which the artisans weave the Iraca Palm around the wire creating intricate lace-like patterns . This is exceptionally detailed handwork passed down through generations and results in an absolutely beautiful item that is also functional and surprisingly sturdy.
