Cipó vines have many uses!

Cipó is used a lot in the natural building world as a substitute for timber and even steel reinforcement. It can make beautiful decoration around window panes and doors and also useful when making shelves out of cob for instance as the framework underneath. It is very flexible when green and so can be woven into many different shapes and left to dry hard. Here Mateus shows us how to make a fruteira, or fruit bowl from the Cipó – very easy and quick to do!
