Hutan Harapan

By hampshirehouse January 15, 2018 blog

Emily Readett Bayley’s first visit to the Harapan rainforest in Jambi, Sumatra was to research the craft heritage of the indigenous Batin Sembilan community and quantify what sustainable natural materials that can be cultivated or sourced within the Eco System Forest Concession. The aim is to provide livelihood opportunities for these semi nomadic people who are no longer able to subsist as hunter gatherers. She is looking to produce a variety of handcrafted products including baskets, brushes, plant pots and bird boxes suitable for sale in the European DIY and home renovation stores which are part of the One Kingfisher Group who are collaborators alongside the RSPB in the Hutan Harapan Forest Restoration Project.
