While working at a large architecture company leading retail, entertainment and hospitality design projects, Carolina Tombolesi was tasked with handcrafting a porcelain espresso set from washable hide coasters. It was during this challenge that she discovered a unique, leather-like fabric made from recycled paper that could be molded and shaped with water. “I was so amazed by the clean look and diverse uses for the reclaimed material, I needed to get my hands wet – literally,” she said. This one-of-a-kind material would then become the foundation for Urban Sacs, both in its function, form and commitment to sustainability. Each sac is made of washable paper made through a process of cultivation, not deforestation, and handmade by a local craftsman.
SMALL CREATIVE SAC (MORE COLORS)
The Small Creative Sac is ready to take your counter tops, and table tops to the next level with sustainability and style. Use this smaller size to hold spices while you cook or snack, as vases for floral arrangements or a place to store your paper clips!
Harvested through cultivation not deforestation, the sustainable lightweight material used in Urbana Sacs is infused with a variety of virgin pulp fiber blends and recycled polyester felts. Individually handmade in Los Angeles with washable paper fabric, the sacs have been designed so that you can cuff and shape them to suit your needs. Like fabric, it can be washed and reused over and over again.
