WHAT IS ZAGBOX

Zagbox is a line of artistic containers made in the US from sustainably grown wood, which beautifully display and highlight the objects they hold.  They arrive flat packed, and rely on clever features cut into the wood to assemble easily without tools or fasteners.  Each is designed to be multipurpose, and we encourage users to come up with creative uses for them.

The boxes are designed to ship flat, which reduces shipping cost and impact, and the end user simply folds and snaps the pieces together to form the box (this takes about a minute).  To allow the boxes to quickly transform from flat to sturdy container, we combined unique design features including dovetail joints which snap into place with a satisfying click, and “living hinges” cut into the wood, which make it flexible.zagbox

We have spent a lot of time carefully crafting designs, sourcing materials, and locating suppliers in order to reduce the environmental impact of producing the boxes and to manufacture entirely in the US.

DESIGN

“Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful”  — William Morris

There are three Zagbox designs, and they share a similar architecture and design aesthetic employing wood living hinges and snap-together dovetail joint construction.  They arrive flat packed and are easily assembled and disassembled by hand.

SUSTAINABILITY

We have been inspired by the example of companies like Patagonia, which consider customers, employees, and the environment in their decisions, and demonstrate that taking care of all stakeholders can pay off in the end.

Because of this, we have paid a considerable amount of attention to the environmental impact of the boxes and designed them to minimize impact through their entire life cycle:

  • Made of sustainably-produced wood (FSC certified) and natural shellac finish
  • Renewable energy used for production
  • Flat pack reduces packaging and fuel to transport
  • Biodegradable at end of life.

We hope to improve the sustainability of Zagbox even further in the future.  -Zagbox

“Recently, FashionistaTea was an exhibitor at the Real NYC Designer Market in the Nolita neighborhood of New York City.  The Market features handmade décor, fashion, leather work, jewelry and all kinds of accessories. I had the opportunity to meet, Artist Reed Slater who was exhibiting beautiful scarves made from Tea.

Reed launched Tea Scarf in 2013 with the desire to create sustainably produced, eco-friendly, luxury scarves.  The scarves are printed on sustainably produced bamboo fabric and each pattern is created using teabags (how cool is this??) which have been steeped and printed on paper.  Each design and scarf is unique and the original prints on paper are photographed and the designs transferred to bamboo fiber, becoming wearable art.  Reed works in Brooklyn, New York and they are the stylish accessory to wear on a cool summer evening.  Check out his web site at:  www.teascarf.com  

How could I not love this, fashion that is eco-friendly and the perfect combination of Tea and fashion!

Here are a few of Reed’s scarves that were featured at the Designer Market (www.RealNYCmarket.com)”
