About Skeleton Leaf

Skeleton Leaf - Just The Leaves supplies highly attractive and decorative leaves generally known as skeleton leaves. They are real leaves which have been harvested and processed by hand to a high standard in Thailand. We started trading in our present form in 2010 and are UK owned.

We aim to enhance the quality of people's lives with beautiful and inspiring products made from the best quality materials. We also aim to help provide employment for less fortunate people in a developing country.

We practise the fundamental principles of fair trade. We work closely with our partners in Thailand to encourage good working conditions and fair rates of pay. Respect for the environment and for local customs are also very important to us.

Skeleton Leaf - Just The Leaves has established very close connections with some excellent small family-run businesses in Thailand. Hence we can offer you unparalleled access to new and exciting products as well as the option of customising products to your own special requirements.

The team consists of Mike who is based in Chiang Mai, Thailand and Peter of Red Kite Services who lives in Scotland in the UK. Peter maintains our UK stocks of leaves and dispatches most of the orders from there.

"I hope you enjoyed your visit to Skeleton Leaf - Just The Leaves" - Mike (Mike speaks fluent Thai and spends most of the year doing business in Thailand - if you have an interest in sourcing skeleton leaves or any other hand-made products from Thailand, please contact us.)

Skeleton Leaves from the bodhi tree are rounder almost heart shaped leaves with a "spike" at the top (don't worry they aren't sharp). These are available in sizes from 6cm (2.5 inches) up to 15cm (6 inches).

The leaves look very delicate and are valued for their beauty. They are actually quite tough and can be used in many different ways.

One way to enjoy the leaves is to simply throw them up in the air and watch them float to the floor. This method is very ably demonstrated by Peter and Sam who mail the leaves from their office in York.
