PIMELIA is an independent design studio located in Sydney, Australia.
The Birch range of eco-jewellery is the first originally designed product range to be offered by PIMELIA. As a studio committed to sustainability, Pimelia has made every effort to ensure they can call the range ‘environmentally friendly'.
The main body of the work is created from sustainably harvested, high grade Birch plywood that has been Lasercut using 100% green power. The company that cuts the work is incredibly conscientious and committed to making the process of Lasercutting carbon neutral.
All packaging is created from either recycled or natural materials and Pimelia reuses any packaging materials that it receives. The swing tags are lasercut from 100% recycled card using a different company to the one who cuts the Birch. They do not use green power, however, cutting something as thin and flammable as paper requires surprisingly little power and with no inks required to achieve the design, we feel this is a better option than a printed tag. Eventually, this part of the manufacturing will be done in-house with their own green powered Lasercutter.
The Birch range of eco-jewellery is created from a 1mm thick Birch plywood that is lasercut with intricate designs. Due to their toxicity, Pimelia has chosen not to use hardeners or resins to strengthen the wood, but have opted instead for a light varnish to protect the painted finish.
All of the pieces are strong enough to withstand regular wear, however, the larger earrings and necklaces come with a 'handle with care' tag. Do not throw these products into your handbag without protection - they may not enjoy the ride.
