PLANTS, OCEAN WASTE AND LANDFILL BASED MATERIALS
We’re committed to creating products with old materials, once destined for landfill with the aspiration that one day everything new will come from something old.
Choice in materials is always guided by a conscious balance between minimizing environmental impact and what is best in quality and durability. When an old material made anew is not available, we opt for plant based materials that are locally produced.
We meticulously research all materials with circularity in mind. Working hand in hand with artisans, technology experts and exceptional mills, we ensure to find the optimal balance as we continuously evolve our process.
