KuosiKioski Surface Inspiration: Birch bark

Birch bark has been a valuable building and crafting material since pre-historic times. In Finland it was used for example for making boxes, buckets, fishing implements, bags, shoes and roofs. And in addition to that birch bark surface texture is intresting and it´s color delicate. So for a designer it´s a source of inspiration.
