Highlight Collection

The 'Highlight' bio-composite is an alternative solution to fossil fuel-based materials that currently flood the market. The ‘Highlight’ collection is made from hemp, tobacco and grape leftovers.

The Highlight Hemp bio-composite is made from industrial ‘carmagnola’ hemp cultivated at 1300 meters above sea level. The hemp is cultivated for the wellness and beauty sector to produce oil. Nothing gets wasted: all the leftovers resulting from oil production are used to create the bio-composite.

The Highlight Wine bio-composite is made from the by-product of wine production. The pomace – a pulpy leftover of the grapes, is collected from local biologic wineries in South Tyrol.

The Highlight Tobacco bio-composite is made from Venetian tobacco harvest leftovers, such as leaves and stalks.

The materials are manufactured through a high-pressure moulding process and finished with natural beeswax, which creates a shiny surface and protects from moisture.
