We are the root of this unique artisan craft: the amadou processing

This brand and the connected web shop proudly aims to gather together all the producers in the field of this unique, interesting artisan craft, the processing of amadou. The tinder fungus Fomes Fomentarius is traditionally used by our families to handwork out different products like huts, handbags, table sheets, but the softness and other specificity of the hand worked material gives new ways and ideas of usage.

Please keep in mind that all the producers of Europe are gathered in the same small Transylvanian village named CORUND. Nowadays there are 7-8 families who actively, daily are involved in this stunning artisan work. The masters they have names, not brands, they have names, not certifications, they have names, they work with simple tools, without using machinery or chemicals, they don’t need to be approved by wegan associations or animal free certifying clubs. They are Fábián Imre, Fábián Zoltán, Tófalvi Erzsébet, Máthé Magdolna, Barna, Molnos István, Máthé Béla, Máthé Károly.

We realized, that several companies are merchandising some materials named differently, but looking very similar to our hand stretched amadou s. Some pictures used by these sites shows our bags and huts as their own products, undoubtedly there were made by our families, not by those companies. We will protect our traditional artisan craft against these kind of theft of intellectual rights and properties.

We will deliver plenty of pictures, personal stories, videos about these unique artisan craft for you, to acknowledge its unique and rarity and to emphasize this material and to look for new ideas of using it in our daily life. and, of course, the visitors and customers can contribute to sustain this traditional craft by buying, using our products, sharing our posts.
