Kate, who wrote in looking for location ideas for a wedding reception, wrote in again. This time, she's giving me the info to share with you.

Her brother imports a beautiful and environmentally responsible material called Kirei, made from the stalk of the Sorghum plant. Sorghum plants are grown worldwide for food. "The stalks left over after harvest are heat-pressed with a non-toxic adhesive to form lightweight, strong, unique Kirei Board."

Kirei Board can be used for a variety of applications, from flooring to furniture. Kate also told me about Organo-Contemporary, a line of natural home furnishings made from Kirei.

Kate, thanks for letting us know about Kirei!
