We'd seen Kirei board (an eco-friendly wood substitute) on the pages of magazines - but this was the first time up close. It is complex and interesting to look at, extremely light, and can function pretty much anywhere in the home. We especially like seeing it used on walls (rather than a painted accent wall, cover with Kirei for amazing natural texture).
Kirei is "manufactured from waste sorghum straw and a zero VOC adhesive, making it a recycled and healthy for interiors." We especially liked seeing it used on walls (rather than a painted accent wall, layer on the boards for amazing natural texture).
Kirei is a "Japanese word embodying the qualities of 'clean' and 'beautiful'." Locally, you can buy in 3' x 6' sheets from Greenmaker Building Supply: Available in 3' x 6' sheets and in three different thicknesses:
- 10 mm = $250
- 20 mm = $325
- 30 mm = $425
