Birch Bark Rediscovered
MOYA was founded in Berlin by the Siberian-born designer Anastasiya Koshcheeva. Since 2012, Anastasiya has been passionate about connecting the ancient Siberian handicraft from her homeland with clear contemporary design. Since the very beginning, it has been our aim to create birchbark products of the highest quality in a socially and environmentally responsible way.
We source our birch bark from the endless Siberian taiga and let its natural beauty unravel to the fullest with the help of clear shapes, contrasting details, and playful colours. Our products link the uniqueness of a natural material with the precision of modern technology.
In our products, we solely use the best quality untreated birch bark. We harvest our bark once a year and give particular care to ensuring that the inner layer of the bark is not damaged in the process, so the trees remain unharmed.
Naturally occurring substances in the bark and their interplay ensure that the birch trees survive even the leanest nutrient conditions and the harshest weather and are fully renewable within 20–25 years. Birchbark’s versatile qualities such as durability, flexibility, tear strength, breathability, and antibacterial properties make it one of the most fascinating natural materials that never ceases to inspire us.
