Coconut Composite Board!

Coconuts form a major component of the Thai diet. Our composite boards are made from the remaining coconut husk and shell, which are often discarded once the coco meat and milk are extracted. Once coconut material is dried, it is then finely crushed, mixed with a 5% adhesive, then formed and pressed in a hot-press machine. Here, we have embossed a patterned decor on the boards, referenced from the various religious and cultural groups within the Kadeejeen community. More images here.
