Grinsing Recycled Wood Earrings
Isen Batik Series: Eco Friendly Wood Dangle Earrings
Batik is an ancient art which uses wax resistant dye on fabric to achieve intricate and colourful patterns. It is originally from Java, Indonesia, where our maker is located. She was inspired by the Isen-isen, tiny motifs featured on batik designs. The names of isen-isen are usually according to their shape and some also have their own meaning.
This particular Isen-isen motif is called Grinsing, a dragon scale inspired pattern. Gring means disease and sing means no, the motif is regarded as sacred design. Our maker recreates this design using reclaimed wood and hand paints each of the motifs to enhance the beauty of the design.
Our Grinsing Recycled Wood Earrings are handmade using offcuts of teak, jackfruit wood or mango wood that are salvaged from furniture factories. These upcycled earrings are elegant, simple and lightweight. Each piece is unique and no two will ever be the same. They make a great eco-friendly gift.

Unlike your bicycle tyres, the puncture repair kit will not save the inner tubes of bus and truck tyres. If not rescued by our designers, these rubber tubes would be consigned to landfill or incinerated.
Instead they are reclaimed from transport companies in Indonesia to be handcrafted into bags, jewellery and other accessories.The varied texture of the rubber gives each item a distinctive character and, although reused, the material remains extremely hard-wearing.

Recycled Printer Belts
The recycled rubber is retrieved from old industrial printing machines. When the printers reach the end of their lives, they will be broken up and sold for scrap. We reclaim the rubber belts and use them for jewellery instead. With variations in texture and colour, all of the pieces are unique.
