Watch this incredible TED Talk from Elora Hardy, sustainable designer and founder of Ibuku. The school, restaurant and hotel of the Sumba Hospitality Foundation are built by Elora and her wonderful team.
We decided to work together with Ibuku because bamboo is a natural sustainable material that grows very fast and is plenty in Indonesia. Though bamboo has traditionally been used throughout Asia, new treatments methods have given it a longer lifespan. Ibuku’s bamboo, selectively harvested from local sources, is treated ecologically, then lab tested to confirm its durability and integrity.
