biodegradable packaging outperforms other sustainable alternatives in terms of barrier properties, fast biodegradation and unique look. 
“It is always great to work with new materials, but this was something that is special and can truly change the world. I wanted to create a luxurious design which feels good while ensuring that woodchips are very visible representing the source of the raw material”, says designer Ilkka Harju.
“Sulapac packaging is a fresh and modern way to pack diamond jewellery. The ecological values and biodegradability are important factors, but we also appreciate the design which inspires us to present our diamond jewellery in the new light.
