Best sustainable bamboo buildings by Elora Hardy

Elora Hardy was part of the first wave of expat kids growing up in Ubud in the 1980′s. Her creative parents would drop the little girl off with friendly craftsmen in various villages where she learned how to carve, paint and batik all sorts of things, but mostly fairy princesses and dragons. In 1994 at the age of 14, Elora went off to a boarding school for the arts in California, then earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts at Tufts University in 2004. Moving to Manhattan in 2005, the young woman talked her way into a job as a designer working for Donna Karan in the weird and wonderful world of fashion. After five years painting on fabric in New York City she returned to Bali in 2010 to join a team of gifted artisans and home designers at PT Bamboo Pure who were building Green School. Elora also has her own design brand, Ibuku
