Print by Nature

We continue to find inspiration by learning about the complex structures, systems and processes in natures. Seemingly simple and perhaps obvious to some, we love digging deeper to learn how things work and to find ways to connect with what we find.

Xà Cừ: The Khaya Print

The custom prints are inspired by the barks of the Xà Cừ trees (Khaya senegalensis) on Tôn Đức Thắng, one of the oldest streets in the center of Sài Gòn. Many of the trees lining this road have been planted since late 1860s to early 1870s, but all of them are being cut down or removed due to road expansion. It is often when things are lost that we start to notice them.
