Jute Tile


Pastel coloured coasters.

by Atelier LVDW

Why is it sustainable?

These coasters are handmade with Jute Tile, a material that reuses jute fibre industrial waste.
In particular, the jute is sourced by Forbo, a company that makes natural linoleum floors.
This waste is mixed with porcelain plaster to obtain a solid material that can be used for tiles or other objects.
In giving waste a new life, these coasters are a clear example of circular design, but not just that.
Since jute fibre is the only waste material in the production of Forbo floors, Jute Tile products actually make Forbo manufacturing a zero-waste process.
An inspiring story, showing the power of collaboration in achieving ambitious objectives!
