When choosing our materials, quality, sustainability and where it comes from are all essential factors. We always look to source locally and keep our eyes open to new and exciting materials.
Our products are primarily made from recycled paper, this can vary from cardboard, old newspapers or any other cellulose product. The paper we use is collected near Barcelona from KM0 recovery plants.
Paper comes from wood, which absorbs CO2 from the atmosphere, and by using paper waste, we re-circle a product more times for the benefit of our environment.
The wooden parts are made with FSC-certified radiata pine and plywood, sourced locally within Spain. We are always looking for new wood types and for different characteristics; we chose to use Radiata Pine in our first collection for its raw and natural look. The knots and wooden grain it has compliments the paper paste's already poetic texture.
A Circular Pouf Top
The fabric in our pouf is regenerated Italian cotton from the Carboni SRL factory. The factory is GRS certified and gets its energy from solar and wind power. Producing cotton is a highly resource-heavy process, so using recycled textiles drastically reduces our water, chemical, and energy consumption.
The cushion is filled with organic coconut fibres mixed with natural latex.
The impact of the materials
Coconut fibre mat for the Pouf
Coir is a renewable resource. It's a byproduct of the coconut harvesting process, and it is otherwise considered as waste. Unlike synthetic materials, the production has a low environmental impact. It requires minimal processing and no harmful chemicals.
Using paper waste reduces the demand for fresh wood, thereby preserving habitats and reducing deforestation. Recycling paper consumes less energy compared to processing raw wood and It diverts a substantial amount of waste from landfills.
Regenerated Italian cotton
The process of regenerating cotton reduces waste and the need for new cotton crops, preserving natural resources and decreasing the carbon footprint of cotton production. This is especially noteworthy given the water-intensive nature of cotton farming.
FSC-certified wood comes from forests that are managed in a way that preserves biological diversity and benefits the ecosystem. It ensures that trees that are harvested are replaced or allowed to regenerate naturally, contributing to the sustainable use of forests.
