Woodwork is the art that we chose to address in the IV chapter of the Embracing Slow Making series. Wood is a timeless material. If, on one hand, it is extremely common, it can be equally endowed with an incredible individuality: the play between colours, textures and veins, which arise with the work on each piece of wood, is unique and special.
Ricardo Jerónimo is our invited artist, inspiring us through the techniques and motifs related to his artistic practice – Rival.
We care about sustainability
We live in an interdependence relationship with our planet. The preservation of the natural resources that it offers us is a responsibility that we should embrace. In this collection, we maintain our commitment with a conscious development, increasing the use of recycled materials, with the purpose to avoid the use of virgin raw materials. Unfortunately, its extraction and processing cause damage to our planet resulting in considerable waste of resources and greenhouse gas emission. In this chapter, we can assure that 100% of synthetic fibers are recycled, meaning that we’ve been able to increase the use of recycled materials up to around 30%.
