This award recognizes products designed, executed or manufactured in Catalonia in Catalonia which incorporate in their design aspects aimed at improving their environmental performance over the course of their life cycle.
There are three categories for the award: Product, Product under development and Young Design. We entered the Product Category, since our Paperpaste Mannequins are a product that we are already manufacturing and distributing to the market.
Our Paperpaste Mannequins are an innovative concept, both for design and environmental impact. The paperpaste, which we mold from recycled paper and cardboard, obtained from KM0 recovery plants, is 100% recyclable and biodegradable.
A material full of life which, both to the eye and to the touch, is history and is future. It allows us to create a mannequin with an exceptional texture and a unique finish that can only be achieved with paperpaste.
We combine this material with other noble materials such as natural pine wood or iron, to offer the most sustainable mannequin on the market. Without using any type of plastic or toxic component.
Our contribution to sustainability does not end here. Although the base material of all our products, the paperpaste, already allows us to offer the most ecological option in terms of product, our commitment to sustainability goes further. Sustainable development and business ethics as a core values at all levels: social, economic and environmental, guide every step and decision taken by our team.
Getting this far has been a big challenge for Pasqual Arnella. And we have succeeded in it thanks to the experience, the technical improvement and, above all, the passion for what we do. Special thanks to our partner and friend John Penther (penther.de), for trusting in our team and empowering us to develop the first Paperpaste Mannequin.
The Paperpaste Mannequin is a fusion between innovation and functionality. As a visible pillar of the fashion industry, it helps brands to communicate with customers, to transmit, beyond aesthetics, a message of social and environmental responsibility.
Valira and Gento are the names we have chosen for the first mannequins made of paperpaste. Both inspired by nature; the river and the glacial lake of the Catalan Pyrenees.
