Which are the advantages of paper pulp products against other materials?
It’s a 100% recycled and recyclable material, it means it’s the most eco-friendly option in the market. Its warm touch in combination with the raw surface transmit a sensation of nature.
Paper paste products are light, resistant and perfect to customize.
Pasqual Arnella has developed its own Technology that allows us to develop paperpaste figures at a very competitive cost and in a very tight timing.
Can we get any form/shape with paperpaste?
With our patented system, we can sculpt almost any form or figure, but still there are certain limitations in terms of size (maximum 1 meter) or in the case of very flat/straight forms.
What do I have to do if I want a customized mannequin or bust form?
Pasqual Arnella is specialized in developing customized projects. We will contact with our client to understand his needs and ideas. Then the first step is to develop a mould based on the original model provided by the customer (a real figure or a 3D file to print it). Any part of it will be totally customizable and then our client would decide the desired finishing (painting, dyed, fabric covered), branding and other specifications.
Which is the resistance of the final product? And the durability?
It has a very high resistance since the resulting products are reinforced paperpaste figures. Even it is not as resistant as fiberglass, it’s much more resistant than cardboard and it can perfectly handle high levels of weight.
Regarding durability, it won’t last as long as plastic petro derivatives, but it offers a very acceptable durability as a mannequin or visual merchandising display.
What materials / components are used to get paper pulp and therefore our products?
Recycled paper and cardboard mixed with water.
For specific pieces of the torsos like: articulations, baseplates, magnets or fabric covers we use noble materials like wooden, metal or organic fabrics.
All Pasqual Arnella products are recyclable?
Yes, because we use paper pulp to make all our products. For fittings, we do use metal or wood and for the baseplastes as well. Exceptionally we develop customized projects that, by their nature and use, we may use only wood or different materials.
Does Pasqual Arnella control the whole manufacturing process?
We manufacture all paperpaste products in our facilities in Barcelona. From the very first contact with our client until the package of the products, everything is manufactured and supervised by Pasqual Arnella team in our factory.
In-house and local production allows us to provide a totally customized and flexible service and also offer very competitive prices and tight timings.
Are there other brands that develop busts and paper paste mannequins?
We are the only company in the market that develops this type of products with paper pulp. Other manikin firms develop collections with a similar surface finish or try to imitate paper pulp, but the interior of the product remains fiberglass or plastic.
