The rubber tree releases latex from which rubber is made.
But at some point the latex runs out.
The wood is a wonderful raw material for wood carving.
In Thailand they make this beautiful collection of old rubber trees sturdy cutting boards, handy tapas boards and attractive candle holders.
Frans Hegge designed the collection "In de Wolken" and gave the rubber tree a second life.
Design Studio hegge ID stands for beautiful and functional design, that, where possible, recycles materials and parts. strong>
