About the Double Pandans

Hairpins are the oldest hair accessory and have been used by different civilisations for centuries. The Double Pandan hairpins have a simple, smooth shape and modern feel. They were inspired by the long pandan leaves which are used widely in Indonesia for cooking, fragrances and natural dyes. They also have various health benefits and are used for their healing properties.

Hairpins are incredibly easy to use, and help to reduce hair breakage and damage. The wood also holds the natural oils in your hair making it a healthier alternative to plastic clips and elastic bands. For further inspiration on how to use them, check out our tutorials boards below.

The Double Pandans are hand crafted, carved and finished by traditional woodcarvers in Bali, Indonesia. The wood used to create each piece comes from reclaimed roots. For each set of Double Pandans sold by S A Y A will plant 7 trees into protected rainforests in Indonesia. Your hairpins will arrive in recycled packaging made from papaya pulp, and with a protective fabric sleeve to keep them safe when you are on the move.

Your Environmental Impact?

Planting trees is one of the best ways to fight climate change. Trees not only absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, they also provide a habitat for a diverse range of species in the rainforest.

Why roots?

Wood is only a renewable and eco-friendly material if it is consciously sourced. Tropical hardwoods in particular grow very slowly and in low densities, and regenerate poorly after logging. These species are often taken from forests in non-sustainable numbers, and illegal ways.

Searching for a way of sourcing wood sustainably, SAYA Designs came across Made & Ways, sculptors who dig up and recycle root wood from old commercial plantations all across Indonesia. The roots are left behind by loggers harvesting trees on large-scale production sites. They take hundreds of years to decompose and have little value for the soil.

By using this waste material we are having as little impact on the environment as possible.

Recycled Rosewood Root

Rosewood is one of the most popular agroforestry plants in Indonesia. Its high value has encouraged over harvesting, and the natural populations of this tree are facing extinction. Since 1998 the IUCN World Conservation Agency have labeled it a vulnerable species. Scientific name: Dalbergia Latifolia

Recycled Tamarind Root

Tamarind is a soft wood usually planted for its sweet fruits. The tamarind fruit is popular in eastern cooking, as well as being used in many cosmetic products. It has a very light colour, and red and purple grains sometimes criss-cross its centre. Scientific name: Tamarindus Indica
