Windmill wings from bamboo
Making windmills even more sustainable! Dutch designer Gijsbert Koren has made bamboo wings for a classic windmill. The wings are made from two layers of handwoven bamboo mats and are protected and kept in shape by resin. The mats are handwoven by tribal craftsmen from India, giving them a new source of income. The windmill is suitable for the Western market, but also for rural markets in India, where less than half of the households have access to electricity.
