Fango has started Ibuju, a project focused on the preservation of the Colombian jungle using yaré fibre.

Ibuju is a project focused on Colombian jungle preservation using yaré fibre as a sustainable material to replace indiscriminate deforestation.

"Yaré is an example of the great biodiversity that Colombia has," told Fango Studio.

This fibre, extracted by indigenous communities in the south of Colombia, grows attached to trees and has been used by local communities for the development of handicrafts.

This project started with a group of weavers, translating the furniture aesthetics made from wooden blocks in a primitive way to the use of yaré weaving in these same geometries.

This project has been longlisted in the sustainable design (consumer) category of Dezeen Awards 2023.
