Things folded and connected


‘Oritsunagumono’ (translated as ”things folded and connected”) is a collection of origami works by artist takayuki hori, created to highlight the environmental threat of pollution to a number of species native to japan’s coastal waterways.

Each translucent sheet is first printed with either the images of fragments of an animal’s skeleton, or, on some pages, human-made discarded objects that are often ingested by the animals in the wild. Using the ancient tradition of folded paper, hori assembles the pages into a three-dimensional model. Once the paper is folded, the printed components are united as a whole, telling the visual story
of the animal’s plight to survive in an increasingly polluted and hazardous ecosystem.

While the animal skeletons appear as x-ray images, the garbage they ingest is frequently highlighted in colour.

Wallets!






Hot days in Spain, enjoying many flyable days, finishing several things before September. Today we’ve just introduced these new wallet versions. Inside the recycled section; Wallet nº30 and Wallet nº2.
Some new recycled dry sacs and some other things will be coming very soon.
Wish you all are having a good summer time! ;)

Ozone; Cool things from recycled wings


Dismantling and working with Ozone wings it is fun, exciting and satisfying.
With this beautiful title: ”Cool things from recycled wings” we’ve got today a news piece on their website.

The Spanish Company, Blauvent by Carmesine, has created a line of bags and accessories for paraglider pilots, made by paraglider pilots… and made from recycled Ozone paragliders!
We have just received a few examples of the line, and we have to say that they are some of the most unique and intriguing paragliding-related items that we have seen for quite some time. The attention to detail and the versatility of the products is impressive, and the designer has made very clever use of the wing color patterns.
All products are individually hand made with great care in Spain at Blauvent’s small scale production facility. Because each item in the recycled line is made from a different piece of each recycled wing, each product is unique. Order a handbag or a travel wallet, and you’ll own a piece of an Ozone prototype, probably a Delta :)
Check out Blauvent’s website, which shows not only the recycled wing line but also a variety of other products, from swimwear to wall art and even some furniture. www.blauvent.com
Cheers from all the Team
