Innovation and Responsibility: Enhancing Storage Solutions with an Eye Toward Sustainability
California Closets takes great pride in the innovation of our product line. We constantly seek partners that are forward-thinking and who support our beliefs in design, green-leadership, and providing unique products to our customers.
One of my very favorite product lines is our Ecoresin collection by 3-Form. Ecoresin is a sustainable product that incorporates 40-percent pre-consumer recycled content and creates a beautiful material that can be used as panels, door and drawer inserts, and any artistic accent that can be dreamed up. They instantly brighten a bedroom or entertainment center and effortlessly change the style of a room from season to season.
Ecoresin Accents offers a product line called the Full Circle series that I absolutely love. These materials are created by artisans throughout the world and support global communities.
Here are just some of the Ecoresins that we carry that are from the Full Circle line:
Passion Connection – Villagers in Nepal earn supplemental income by tending silkworms and their delicate cocoons in the attics of the homes.
The cocoons are carefully soaked in water and hand pulled and dyed to make the exquisite passion strips. The vibrant red is a stunning addition to any space, adding a pop of color and style to the design.
Bamboo Rings – Artisans in Southwest China handcraft the bamboo into alluring rings that are cut to various depths and sizes to create dimension for the Ecoresin panels. They transform an abundant resource into a work of art. The bamboo rings bring a richness to any design by adding a variation of depths and shadows within the material.
Fossil Leaf – Chinese farmers grow 'prayer leaves,' which are washed and processed in a delicate manner to preserve the structure of the leaf. The beautiful balance of nature and design is so beautifully represented in the Fossil Leaf material, making it well suited for any space.
Dark Ponder – Villagers in Nepal gather and replant Lotka bark to be sorted and hand washed before going through the paper-making process to create the beautiful material that is then embedded in the Ecoresin. Dark Ponder makes a bold statement open for interpretation by the beholder.
We celebrate and appreciate our partners, such as 3-Form, that bring us visually appealing and sustainable materials such as those found in the Full Circle line. We love working with these beautiful accents, and we look forward to talking with you about how they can be incorporated into your own home and personal design.
