•Smell — sweet earth natural palm leaves // Application can help reduce anxiety from long-term exposure to urban environments and metropolitan areas — for people feeling homesick who are native of warmer tropical homelands.
•Touch — the texture is made from organic material for people who appreciate nature and plants. There is an energetic exchange which happens every time it is felt. You know it is real and maybe the realest thing you touch all day in this time of computers and smartphones. It allows us the opportunity to ground and center into our essence.
•Sight — combination of palm and vines forming hearts all around reminding us of the importance of love as the driving force of existence. This is a new, simple and powerful pattern created in the heart of Southern Mindoro.
•Sound — The subtle sound the wallet makes when opening and closing from the gentle friction of the dried leaves is soothing and relaxing to the most sensitive ears.
