Recycled Material February 16 2016
|The paper industry in Colle Val d'Elsa has been for many centuries very important from both an economic and cultural point of view. Books of all kinds were printed since 1400, also on behalf of major universities, such as University of Pisa and University of Florence. Towards the end of 1700, there were up to 23 paper mills and for the following centuries some of them have had a monopoly in the production of stamped paper.To date, paper production has been replaced by other industries, and has lost the primacy of the past.With the recycled cardboard projects presented, we want to help keep alive and tell a story, a tradition, a culture of our territory.
|The eetico projects are the result of responsible choices of materials, technology and funcionality, to create products that can combine convenience with ecological economics. The first one is a collection of objects made from recycled cardboard, a lamellar structure consisting of sheets of laser-cut and assembled by hand. Cardboard is a poor material, simple but extremely fascinating. A lightweight material, easy to carry and assemble, eco-friendly because it is completely recyclable. Each project in the collection is manufactured respecting the environment, including the use of materials, the manufacturing process, the transport, the product use and disposal.
