I am so thrilled to start offering Cypress products beginning August 1st. These are absolutely stunning, handmade pieces and clients will be able to customize them to their liking. I will be offering a few different products including the Artisan Book (take a look at that gorgeous thing!). Anyone that knows me knows that I do not take offering a new product to my clients lightly. I spend way more time than any human should researching the available products, the company that makes them and what impact offering the new products will have. In the end I feel great not only about the albums but the company itself. I will have photos to share soon, but in the meantime here is a statement from Cypress about the company.
Our albums are built to last for many generations to enjoy, so it goes hand-in-hand that we value the preservation of our earth for future generations to come. Here at Cypress, we are people, animal, and earth friendly.
Our Products & Our Company:
*We do not use or sell any animal products.
*We use only non-toxic, archival glue.
*Our binders board (used in the construction of album covers, boxes, and folios) is made from 100% recycled content.
*Our products are made in the USA, handcrafted by artisans who receive fair wages.
*We reuse and recycle everything possible, from paper and fabric scraps to shipping boxes to cans/bottles in our lunchroom.
*Our office, kitchen, and restroom paper products are made from recycled content.
*We are working to reduce our carbon footprint by saving electricity through the use of efficient long-lasting fluorescent lighting and reminders on all of our light switches to conserve energy.Our Album Pages are…
*Acid-free, which keeps your photos in a PH-neutral, archival environment.
*Tree-free, made from 100% cotton linters, which are a waste byproduct of the textile industry.
*Chlorine bleach-free, keeping harmful chemicals out of our homes, not to mention our water sources.
