Palm leaf is the most valuable part of the plant for artisanal design. During the dry season, these palm leaves are collected and sorted by quality. Palm trees are sustainable material because no tropical rain forests are cut down for the cultivation of the palms. The water used to clean the palm leaves is collected and subsequently used for the irrigation of the plants.
