At Jungle Culture we strive to be different from the rest. Our brand, our products and our way of operating is all centred around this concept.
We believe that the process of creating a product shouldn’t begin on a laptop, it should start on the ground. Which is why we base ourselves in Vietnam, close to the centre of our production, where we are able to guarantee fair treatment of workers, high-quality standards and organic manufacturing.
Tackling the problem of waste is not a niche issue. It is dilemma that affects all life on our planet, and with this in mind we have committed to maintaining low prices, and making our products as easily accessible as possible. We refuse to raise our prices or compromise on quality.
Eco-friendly shouldn’t equal eco-expensive!
Our products are all sourced, designed and improved upon by our in-house Jungle Team and we hope that you enjoy using them as much as we enjoyed creating them.
Every product tells a story, and is shaped by the people and the brand that created it. Check out some of the stories behind our products below.
Our bamboo straw farm is owned and run by Ha Van Thom, a former Vietnamese army veteran whose family have farmed rice on his land for generations. Due to the abundance of rice farmers in the area Thombinh (as we affectionately call him) made the brave decision to transform his business and begin crafting bamboo straws.
Thombinh’s workforce is made up of 25 of his family members, friends and neighbours. Back in August 2018 he had just 4 of his family members working at the farm, and we are proud to be a part of his story.View Products
While visiting our bamboo straw farm in Northern Vietnam our translator spoke to several local villagers who told us about a “mountain man” who carved spoons from sustainable materials. We decided to visit, and after driving several hours down winding roads and across rivers we had nearly given up, when we came across a house made of bamboo.
The carpenter and naturist who lived in the house was named Hà (River), and after a brief conversation he agreed to show us his workshop. We were completely blown away by the quality of his work and have been working together ever since. Your belief in us has allowed Hà to train other villagers and create a small craft workshop for making bamboo cutlery.View Products
Our coconut bowls are made in a region called Bến Tre, in the South of Vietnam. A region famed for it’s high quality coconuts. Most of the world’s coconuts are produced to create by-products such as oils and creams. Once the coconuts have been harvested, the trees, shells and husks are burned to make way for new crops.
Using coconut bowls and the accompanying spoons means that less coconuts are burned and more are recycled. It also allows the local villagers to make a much needed second income.View Products
