PAPU X SULAPAC
Pioneering sustainable jewellery
Jewellery lovers are pampered this spring as Papu Design joins forces with Sulapac to produce a pioneering jewellery collection.
What makes this collection truly unique is the material. Papu jewellery collection is first in the world jewellery made from Sulapac’s eco-friendly bio-base material. Finished with sterling silver parts and with Papu Design’s unique style, these will turn heads wherever you go.
Handmade in Finland.
ECO-FRIENDLY SULAPAC BASE
The jewellery collection is made of Sulapac’s bio-base - a material that biodegrades without leaving a permanent micro-plastic and is completely nickel-free.
NICKEL FREE STERLING SILVER
The jewellery pieces are finished with metal parts made of 925 silver and therefore also suitable for consumers who are sensitive to nickel.
HANDMADE IN FINLAND
The products are handmade in Finland.
Recent jewellery trends have been strongly inspired by the previous decades, especially the aesthetics of the millennium. Inspired by nostalgic styles, Papu Design’s jewellery collection strives to combine the charm of the past with a new.
The jewellery in its design language is timeless and stylish, but the collection also serves spectacular eye-catchers for celebrations and everyday life. The new jewellery collection is designed to follow Papu Design's iconic design language and the recognizable style of the clothing collections. The collection is inherent extension of Papu's existing range repeating the well-known semicircle in the jewellery that has been seen on the clothing collections previously.
