The first stationery collection made from recycled jeans and cocoa shells!
The protective covering is made from a combination of 50% recycled jean fibres and 50% cellulose-free sustainable wood fibres (which are FSC® certified). To make this product we use offcuts from the denim industry, whilst also collecting used jeans. This eco-friendly product forms part of a circular economy.
The protective covering is made from a combination of 70% cocoa shells and 30% cellulose-free sustainable wood fibres (which are FSC® certified). To make this product we use parts of the cocoa bean which are disposed of by the confectionery industry when producing chocolate. This eco-friendly product forms part of a circular economy.
Clairefontaine has joined forces with K-3, a brand designed by the famous designer Kenzo Takada a few months before his death, to create a unique stationery box.
This elegant box with flap, with black velvet interior, contains many accessories specially designed for lovers of writing and calligraphy: notebooks, pads, bookmarks, memo pad, correspondence cards with envelopes, ink bottle and an exceptional glass nib. The ideal gift for all artists at heart.
The box, as well as some of the objects it contains, carry a Kintsugi, as a tribute to Japanese know-how. This ancestral art invites you to repair a broken object by highlighting its flaws and scars with gold leaf, a tradition dear to the creative world of K三.
For Kenzo Takada, the collaboration with Clairefontaine was an obvious choice.
The artist's boundless creativity manifested itself on a daily basis in different forms: painting, calligraphy... The creative tools included in this box were an integral part of his daily life.
