Introducing new Crush Grape

Many of you will know about our lovely range called CRUSH from Favini. The paper is made partly using the residue from the industrial processing of crushed citrus fruit, coffee, nuts, olives, kiwi, corn, lavender and cherries. These agro-industrial "end of life" products replace up to 15% of conventional tree pulp. The range is available in 100, 120, 200, 250 and 350gsm and the shades are natural, earthy tones and the feel of the paper is natural and tactile. We originally launched the range in 2013 and there have already been additions to the range last year.
Favini has recently been working with champagne house Veuve Clicquot to develop a range of packaging using the left over grape residues from the production of their champagne, which has resulted in this new Veuve Clicquot packaging, Naturally Clicquot.
The packaging won the Formes De Luxe prize at the Luxepack exhibition in Monaco last September and you can see a video about the project here:
...and the good news is they have now applied their experiences to make a new addition to the CRUSH range - CRUSH Grape!
New Crush Grape, is available in the standard substances of the other products (100, 120, 200, 250 and 350gsm) with the addition of an additional 90gsm with "wet strength" properties, making it suitable for labelling applications such as wine bottle labelling.
Here is the new swatch (branding by Silk Pearce)
Crush is FSC certified, GMO free, contains 30% post-consumer recycled waste and is produced with 100% green energy. The production process and the product are protected by European patent. Including the new Grape, the range now consists of ten shades.
If you would like samples, please get in contact and I'll send you a new swatch.
