• The textile traditions of eastern Indonesia rely on Symplocos bark as the mordant for their natural red dye processes.
  • However, the traditional networks for Symplocos trade are breaking down because the harvesting of bark is unsustainable.
  • The Bebali Foundation is building a new local trade network for sustainably harvested Symplocos to fulfill the needs of traditional dyers so that they can continue their art.
  • International Symplocos sales support the Bebali Foundation’s work and reinforce its message to traditional Indonesian dyers that using fallen leaves is better then using bark.
