Creative Dundee

Indigenous Materials Library

Collaborating with lead partner, MaticHub in Cebu, Philippines, we have been researching indigenous materials native to the Tay and wider region. 

The project aims to enable sustainable and responsible approaches when considering material choices. The full open wiki of material profiles can be accessed here and you can read about the 15 selected materials specific to Scotland below. 

This project was enabled through British Council’s Connections Through Culture: UK-South East Asia. This is the first collaboration between two creative communities in the UNESCO Cities of Design of Dundee and Cebu.
