Leaves of Indian sal tree are used in the design. Every leaf is dried and coloured to give the material a unique pattern. Every bump of the material can be felt on the product’s surface. No leather or toxic treatments are applied. Leaves are lighter in weight than leather and fragrance of the sal leaves are also very appealing. Considering all these merits of sal tree, the first product designed by Ecowings was the leaf notebook.
