Three members living in Tsunami devastated village known as Thotagamuwa (closer Hikkaduwa Tourist Resort) on the South Coast of Sri Lanka.

They are making different kind of bags, purses, small animals and other products made of palm skin.

Palm skin is a kind of netting growing over leaves to protect against storm, rain and strong sun. The materiel is cut from palm trees when the leaves are strong enough to protect themselves. If not used it ends up as waste. It is therefore a very environmental friendly raw material.
