CRUSH - new paper launch

We are launching a new paper range from FAVINI in Italy. This new range is called CRUSH, the name reflecting the fact that it's made partly using the residue from the industrial processing of crushed citrus fruit, coffee, nuts, olives, kiwi and corn. These agro-industrial "end of life" products replace up to 15% of conventional tree pulp.

CRUSH was launched in Italy last year and was awarded the green award at the Luxe Pack exhibition in Monaco:

This video produced by Favini, will give you an insight as to how the residue from the citrus fruit processing industry is utilised:

The new paper range comes in weights from 100gsm up to 350gsm and the shades are natural, earthy tones and the feel of the paper is natural and tactile.

To launch this new range, we are jointly hosting with FAVINI, a launch evening at the St Brides Foundation in London. During the evening Michele Posocco, product manager from the mill in Italy, will explain the concept behind the range and demonstrate how CRUSH is produced.

The letterpress workshop will be open and printers Richard Lawrence and Helen Ingham will be on hand, demonstrating and giving people the opportunity to print themselves. There will also be guided tours of the foundation and the world famous printing library - if you haven't been around this historic building, it is well worth a visit.

The launch is on Thursday 26th September 2013. Doors open from 6pm,the presentation is at 6.45pm and the letterpress workshop is open until 9.00pm. If you would like a ticket to the launch evening, you can book one on Eventbrite by following the following link:
