May is the month when everything is blooming and coming to life. Our idea of an zero-waste & pocket-friendly album with a presentation box was growing for the last few months.
We have planted this vision in our heads a little while ago when we introduced biodegradable air-cushions. We wanted to create a product that would use some recycled materials and bits & pieces that would otherwise go to waste.
This idea is now in full bloom! And it’s called a BloomBook! How original…! 😉
So let me give you some details about the BloomBook. We bulk buy the material – the raw linen. That saves us money by reducing transportation costs, and generally, we can negotiate a better price.
As we offer just one size (20x20cm) we can have the material cut by a machine, which leaves very little material wasted. The Bloom Book comes in a presentation box, which is included in the price. The outer box is made of 3 mm cardboard from recycling, not actual wood.
The wooden frame inside the box is made of wood chips of an alder tree and it’s attached to the box with screws, so very little glue is needed – which means fewer chemicals.
As the money doesn’t grow on trees, we can now offer a product that is of very high quality yet super affordable. From only 65$ you can have the album and the presentation box! It’s a great entry level album for anybody who is starting to offer albums.
