Orange peels are collected from street juice vendors. These upcycled pieces, which would have otherwise been thrown away, are cleaned and prepped to be transformed into flowers, twists, or spirals. After drying in the sun for seven days, they harden to a texture similar to stiff leather while retaining the natural oils for a light citrus scent. Natural dyes are added to create bright styles, or the peels can remain uncolored for a whiteish hue.
