The HUMAN collection explores new uses for paper, particularly recycled linen fibre. This material possesses technical and mechanical properties that have no equivalent! It has been a source of inspiration and innovation for our designers! We experimented with dozens of approaches before managing to convert local know-how (from the craft industry) into industrial applications. Today, we present 5 different applications with the Spirit-Free collection (Fine, Malt, Pure, Infuse, Dry). Without glue, the paper is applied by hand to the bottle. It is its natural shrinkage during drying that allows its fixation. It can be worked directly into its mass, by acting on its density or composition. The additional techniques for embellishing it are inexhaustible: embossing, watercolouring, pad printing, cutting/folding… Malleable at will, this paper has been produced by hand for centuries by a French paper mill. Its manufacture is unique! The master papermaker gives a second life to old linen sheets recovered from flea markets. Each linen fibre is thus untied to give birth to a sheet of paper. With this HUMAN collection, we wish to introduce our customers to new ways of exploring the codes of luxury. Intended for small series, this natural material allows an ultra-customization while being more responsible.
