8 WAYS TO REUSE THE KŌRARU SOFT PAPER CARRIER
Circularity is everything at Kōraru. We believe the future of sustainable, thoughtful consumption lies in the principle of extending the life cycles of the pieces we love by recycling and reusing.
Each and every one of our swimsuits are crafted from Econyl®, a regenerated nylon made from ocean waste. Wear it, enjoy it, then pass it on. Kōraru is built to last. Our packing also utilises upcycled materials and has been carefully designed to be fully recyclable and repurposed.
The Kōraru carrier is made from Paptic Tringa®, an innovative plastic-free cellulose produced with wood fibres from sustainably-managed forests. Durable and flexible, not only does it act as a protective wrap around our swimsuits, its form is inspired by the Japanese art of origami, making it a thing of beauty in itself. Once unboxed it can be reused in myriad ways, from organisation to storage. The possibilities are endless, but here are just a few suggestions:
Ensure swimwear is kept pristine by folding it into the carrier and storing it along with the rest of your seasonal wardrobe.
LINGERIE DRAWER TIDY
Keep your lingerie collection in check by placing spare straps and clasps, or delicate pieces in the carrier. Slot it into your drawer for easy access.
Maintain order while packing by using each carrier to hold smaller pieces such as accessories, underwear, slips and, of course, swimwear.
Prevent valuables getting lost by placing them into the carrier and slipping it inside capacious beach totes.
Sort busy work spaces by tidying pens, clips, noteletts and other office necessities into the carrier. Put it in a drawer, or leave it on the desktop as a stylish decorative touch.
Use the carrier as a stylish and sustainable alternative to wrapping paper by slipping presents inside and sealing it with a reusable bow.
Slot your favourite reading book inside your carrier to protect it from collecting dust and sit in on the nightstand.
Unfold the carrier and re-make it into your own, unique origami creation. Adorn mantelpieces and shelves, or gift it to a loved one.
