Regenerated leather is made of 90% renewable natural materials and does not contain synthetic fibers.

 

 

Recycled cardboard

Recycled cardboard is made 100% of waste paper. Energy and water consumption are minimized in the manufacturing process and the material is dyed without harmful substances. The material has been granted the “Blue Angel Eco-label”, the oldest international environmental label.

In addition to dyed cardboard, we use FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council) -certified recycled cardboard in selected products. FSC® certified products have been produced using material from responsible sources. The raw material is made from recycled materials certified and approved by the organization.

 

 

Paper

The paper used by Private Case is high quality offset paper made from 100% wood- free recycled paper. The paper has been granted the FSC® and ”EU Ecolabel” environmental labels. The recycled paper and the original ink of the pulp have been cleaned using a process chlorine free technology that causes minimal harm to the environment.

 

Printing

The printing for Private Case products is outsourced. Companies selected as subcontractors strive to minimize harmful effects of dyes. We use both silk screen printing and offset printing depending on the products. The dyes used in silk screen printing are lead-free and non-toxic. Offset printing uses an environmentally friendly non-chemical printing process in combination with vegetable based inks.
