Sustainability Aspects: Made from autumn leaves they can return into the garden or composting bin after use

Leaf business card

A business card made using an autumn leaf from the garden. Fallen leaves are gathered in the autumn, and dried. The letters are not ink-printed but embossed into the leaf using a stamp; the corners of the leaf are rounded off to complete the process. And, once they have been used, the ‘cards’ can be given back to the garden; it is a project primarily intended to eco-inspire.

Nominated for the Doen Materiaalprijs 2011
