For centuries, natural substances served purposes now reserved for synthetic materials. Clay, soil, wood, seeds, leaf fiber, stones, skins, hair, and bones were employed for function and adornment. Today , the necessity of using natural materials is gone, but the appeal of goods hand-made from organic substances remains.
