MATERIA VIVA by Fedrigoni: Elegant Papers Sustainably Made

Spotlight: Fedrigoni

Once seen as simply trendy, sustainability is now fast becoming one of the most important aspects of your clients’ packaging and marketing materials, particularly among the Millennials and members of Generation Z whom they’re so eager to attract. As a result, luxury brands in particular are looking for new ways to present their products with elegance and sophistication, while also emphasizing their sustainable practices. This couldn’t be easier when you use the high-quality, high-recycled content papers that make up the MATERIA VIVA collection from Fedrigoni.

Papers as Sustainable as they are Exquisite

Whether you’re creating luxury packaging, tempting brochures, or something else entirely, the papers that make up this sophisticated collection exude a vitality all their own.

Italian for “living matter,” MATERIA VIVA lives up to its name. That’s due, in part, to the recycled fibers – including alternative fibers such as cotton and hemp – used to make them, and in part to the variable quantities of recycled content (from 20% to 100%); all FSC-certified.”

From the extraction of raw materials to the manufacture and distribution of the final product, these papers are part of Fedrigoni’s ambitious plan to boost the sustainability of its products while reducing its overall environmental impact. This commitment recently won the paper maker the Platinum Medal from international sustainability rating agency EcoVadis.

This Versatile Collection Consists of:

Symbol Card Eco 50 and Symbol Card Eco 100. If you’re designing luxury packaging, postcards or other heavy-duty materials, Symbol Card has you covered with either coated-one-side (C1S) or coated-two-side (C2S) boards made with elemental chlorine free/ wood-free cellulose, in either 50% (Eco 50) or 100% (Eco 100) recycled fiber options.
