About "upcycling" efforts
Scandinavia is touted as an environmentally advanced country by making daily efforts for sustainability and eco-friendliness even at the citizen level.At Moominvalley Park in "metsä" where you can experience the Nordic world view, I sympathize with the philosophy of the Nordic countries.In order to aim for an earth-friendly initiative that can contribute to the environment even little by little at the individual company level, we will add new value such as design and ideas to the waste that would otherwise be discarded, and another new product. At Umbrella Sky, we will carry out an "upcycle" initiative that will allow you to upgrade to and reborn.
PLASTICITY was founded by creator Akiki Saito, and became a brand jointly developed by Mr. Saito and Mondo Design Co., Ltd. from April 2020, and all products are discarded or stored as forgotten items and then finally discarded. We recycle all the vinyl umbrellas that are stored.In order to make the best use of the characteristics of the material of the umbrella such as waterproofness and maintainability, we have developed a unique processing method that presses multiple layers as it is.Furthermore, by creating a rainy look in the processing process, a product with a unique texture not found in other products has been completed.
