Kinta's pulp products, as vases and decorations, are made in Lorna’s workshop. The production of almost all capiz decoration is also carried out here. For some capiz and wood products, Lorna works closely together with a number of workshops, where the first steps of production take place. Lorna is also responsible for the production of the coloured candleholders, wooden cutlery and other small wooden products. The people who make the products are creative and dedicated.
Lorna produces laminated and
raw capiz products for Kinta. The
products are all handmade.
The production process consists
of cutting the raw capiz (shell),
assembling the pieces by soldering, sewing with nylon or by laminating. Finally, the color is applied.
Together with Kinta, Lorna develops recycled pulp-based products. The entire production process is done by hand, such as applying the pulp to the base. The cooperation of the sun is crucial, for the drying of the products.
Lorna works with skilled craftsmen who are connected with a number of wood workshops. Lorna supplies the wood from the plantations.The final steps of the production process such as hand sanding and painting the wood products, find place at Lorna's workshop.
Lorna works with different materials: capiz, wood, paper and used plastic bottles. Capiz is a flat, oysterlike shell which is found in large quantities in the waters round the Philippine Islands. The capiz shell is processed in various ways, into the most beautiful home accessories. Lorna uses acacia wood to make cutlery. Mahogany wood and gmelina wood are used to make candleholders. These woods come from local plantations. Lorna uses recycled materials for the pulp products. Old newspapers and used plastic bottles are collected by Lorna from local dump stores.
