Cartalana

paper jewellery

Our Green points

  1. Jewels that tell
    Seeing everyday things beyond their usual meaning. To interpret with the imagination the suggestions that come from the simple gesture of manipulating a sheet of paper. Creating stories to wear. This is how Cartalana narrative jewels are born, entirely handmade in Italy with waste paper and fine paper.
  2. Hand spinning
    The main technique used to give life to Cartalana jewelry is the spinning of paper with the spindle by hand. The spindle is an ancient tool recovered from the world of Women’s Arts, here reinterpreted in a sustainable and contemporary way thanks to the use and re-use of paper that is transformed from sheet into yarn.
  3. Slowness
    Cartalana does not follow the fashions of the moment and does not submit to the frenetic rhythms imposed by fast fashion. It allows itself the privilege of taking as much time as it takes to give life to its stories to wear. Slowness, understood as the rediscovery of full time, has always been a fundamental value of the brand.
  4. Zero waste attitude
    Cartalana’s production model is based on upcycling. The paper jewelry are zero impact because obtained from a recovered material and / or easily recyclable as paper. Their realization is therefore part of the virtuous system of circular economy.
  5. Ecology of imagination
    Cartalana is the magic of transformation, a space of imagination where matter flows freely and, in the hands, takes the form of small, light stars that shine with femininity.
  6. Back to the nature
    Cartalana is the energy of Mother Earth channeled into matter. It is the ancient wisdom of the gesture of the weavers of Magna Graecia. It is the regenerating force of Nature that draws from itself to return to new life.
  7. Ethics / Aesthetics
    A mix of tradition, innovation, research, sustainability and style. Since 2012, this is the formula adopted by the brand to outline a natural femininity, simple and elegant in which any woman who loves Nature, who lives in harmony with herself and with what surrounds her, can recognize herself. A woman aware of not wanting anything different from what she already has.
