Wild Ugandan Bark Hat No longer can certain regions of Uganda rely on coffee production to bring about economic and environmental benefits that are badly needed. Deforestation, due to charcoaling and land cultivation, continues to be widespread and alternatives are necessary to protect the land whilst also generating an income for rural farmers.
Wild Ugandan Bark Hat One such alternative is to be found in the Mutuba Fig tree (Ficus Natalensis). The inner bark is harvested and boiled to produce a material that is then beaten with mallets resulting in a cloth which having dried is ideal for a multitude of end products from clothes to furniture. The tree is wrapped in banana leaves to protect it from the sun and will be ready for harvesting a year later.
Wild Ugandan Bark Hat Wild Living’s Ugandan Bark Hat is an ideal example of a conservation and livelihoods product. It is stylish, lightweight, and comfortable but care must be taken not to get this unique cloth wet!
By buying this unique product you are not only enjoying its natural benefits, you are also assisting local communities to safeguard wild habitat areas.
