Vibers Notebook

Wow! The cover you’ve chosen is printed using organic ink on cardboard that’s made from agricultural waste. The paper inside
this notebook is made from Vibers, a fibre produced from elephant grass. Elephant grass is a special plant that grows here on Dutch soil, using vacant lots. It absorbs 4 times as much CO2 as a forest of trees, and grows on poor soil without the use of pesticides.

WoW! The only set of wheels you’re likely to have made from upcycled advertising signs – you can even see part of the adverts printed on the back. These signs have been given a second life as a toy or desktop accessory. The cars are produced in Holland in a wood workshop via a social initiative that offers work and education to participants

WOW! We use technical compression fabric made from 100% regenerated nylon/ polyamide from Econyl – this material is made from waste, including fishing nets and carpets.
