Ricarta (Repaper) is a line of products designed by Alisea using 100% recycled paper. On request, the advanced design can be customized with different types of paper from a sustainable supply chain, such as the seaweed paper, crush paper or apple paper.
No trees are felled to create the paper used to produce notebooks, notepads, folders and packaging. All the paper comes from specially selected pulp, from recycle depots, free from chlorine or derivatives, and no wood is used as a raw material. Producing paper from recycled pulp also minimizes the use of energy, water and harmful chemicals.
Care for the sea to save the trees. Every summer the Venice lagoon is filled with seaweed. And every summer it is harvested and mixed with FSC-CW fibers to create a unique eco-friendly paper: Shiro Alga Carta®. This paper provides an ingenious and innovative solution to protecting the fragile ecosystem of the lagoon. Like a living thing, the texture and coloring of this paper varies depending on the time and area of the harvest and it is the only paper that becomes lighter naturally over time because of its chlorophyll content. Shiro Alga Carta® is pH neutral, “acid free”.
The Apple Paper is created by using the non-recyclable waste produce from the production of fruit juices and mixing the “apple cellulose” with the traditional cellulose.
Every care is taken to protect the environment during its production. It is environmentally friendly, 100% recyclable, made from sustainable raw materials and completely free of chlorine and heavy metals.
“A notebook made of recycled paper in the mid-90s, a gift from a kind neighbor, was the spark that started Alisea’s journey into the world of recycled materials. It was the inspiration that led to the first experiments in sustainable design with projects that transformed recycled produce into valuable raw materials.”
