How to print a sustainable design?

Since 1971, our development has been sustainable. Generations of craftsmen have built our workshops by preparing the technological and ecological future of their trades and producing timeless editions.

For our Printing House, it is very important to know how to develop our tools and techniques, to evolve with the changes of time, to give the means to eco-design projects. Our commitments extend throughout the production cycle, from the sourcing of materials to the influence of each technique. We have the choice to create an as little impact as possible on each stage, and we accompany these complex productions with transparency and humility. There is no exact solution to today’s problems yet, but we are putting on the road a careful mastery of our actions to protect our future. Your implications guide us along this path, encouraging us to make the best possible developments.

Since 1971, our development has been sustainable. Generations of craftsmen have built our workshops by preparing the technological and ecological future of their trades and producing timeless editions. This ecological and social dimension is at the heart of our approach, as we reminded at Luxepack Monaco 2019 and produced for the occasion a responsible invitation – Leave No Trace – manifesto for the future of our editions. A pure brochure, with a positive impact on the environment through recycled, natural, plantable and even nutritious materials.

"Our OBJECTIVE IS TO MEET TODAY'S NEEDS WITHOUT COMPROMISING THE QUALITY OF OUR FUTURE."

Kenzo
Dedicated to the development of sustainable approaches in luxury, plantable invitations have been developed with the Kenzo brand for their Fashion Show Winter 2019. Compostable and food safe, they are made of recycled paper that has become a golden copper tomato seed (protective) and a soya risographed leaflet (nourishing). This invitation has been designed from the envelope to the tomato leaf to be planted, entirely plant-based, with glues and inks that are from our sustainable ranges. Everything can be torn, crumbled and directly planted by accompanying the growth of the project.

 

Nanushka
As we progressed, we worked with the Nanushka brand, which chose to present its men’s collection in Paris, and we had the role of printing the invitation designed by Benjamin Grillon, from our sustainable range. We gilded it with a metallic black film, taking care to recycle waste and supporting the brand’s sustainable ethics.

WE MAKE THE MOST OF OUR SUSTAINABLE RESOURCES AND ARE PLEASED TO PRESENT THEIR VERSATILITY IN THE FORM OF ORDINARY EVERYDAY PRODUCTS!

Silver foil is stamped onto black card for a menu by chef Assaf Granit at Shabour, the restaurant designed by Tom Dixon Studio.
