Earth and clay daub and plaster still form the backbone of worldwide construction. Whilst we manufacture and sell these plasters often for specialist conservation or sustainable new build, many regions of the world use similar plasters as standard. This Gonderian man in Africa mixes clayey subsoil with Teff straw to form a daub, to plaster a timber framed house built from quick growing eucalyptus wood.
