Designer Tjeerd Veenhoven sees opportunities everywhere. A few years ago he was in India and there he was confronted with the enormous surplus of dead leaves from palm trees. What can you do with these leaves except burning them for domestic purposes?
Well for one, you can turn them into flip-flops, like Tjeerd shows in this short video that Submarine produced for the series Dutch Profiles, a series commissioned by DutchDFA.
