- a series dedicated to wood with high quality materials and workmanship and natural wood effect;
- an animal-lover's collection with a series devoted to biodiversity that offers an FSC-certified ecological paper made from recycled fruit, nuts, and fibers that replace 15% of the cellulose of trees, completely free of plastic;

The company is already successful in both domestic and international markets: brands and goods are already recognized and available in more than 30 countries.
The SME is looking for new partners worldwide - mainly in Spain, Germany, Austria, Benelux, Northern and Eastern Europe and the Baltic states - in order to expand its business, with the goal of establishing long-term business relationships.

Advantages and Innovations
These characteristics - technological innovation along with high-quality products, timely delivery, competitive pricing, awareness of market trends and needs, and environmentally friendly manufacturing and product sites - have made the company stand out for years.
The SME is able to satisfy any need because of its adaptable production system and the enduring cooperative connections it has built with its suppliers and clients.
Formats, materials, packaging, and designs can all be customized.

The company prioritizes environmental preservation and has done so for a long time.
Photovoltaic systems supply the electricity needed for the company to become self-sufficient. It uses solar energy to generate 150,000 kW of power annually, preventing the release of over 81,000 kg of CO2 into the atmosphere.
Moreover, it employs cutting-edge, naturally sourced materials that meet market demands for great performance while minimising environmental impact.
The raw material used to make covers is bought in Italy within 25 kilometres of its production facility in order to minimize oil use and CO2 emissions.
Lastly, the residue left over after manufacturing products is converted into raw materials to make more plastic products.
