Coverings Etc. won the prize for best materials at the ICFF. They have materials that are made of glass, metal parts from planes, and some other materials. It's all part of what I've learned is called "cradle to cradle" recyclable materials. Apparently people like it. Shadi, from Trak Kit, and Ofer, from Coverings Etc., seemed to have a lot to say. Ofer is also interested in art and that's a point of interest for all of us.
