Clélie commented on Chindi—Handmade accessories using recycled yarn

What a wonderful idea and project!

Can you tell us more about your process of yarn creation? You talked about a yarn “mechanically pulped and woven”. Do you need to use chemicals to achieve this process or did you find a solution to avoid the use of such products?

I have also questions about the length of the process. How long does it take to create one bag, from the extraction process to the finished product? Being handmade, I suppose it is quite long; therefore, would you be able to respond a potential demand rapidly?

Excited to learn more about your company and product!

Clélie commented on Sponge City Mats

What a wonderful idea! This “sponge city” concept is really inspiring!

Would your solution be suitable for pitched roofs or do you only target flat roofs? I know that some companies have found solution for green roof with a slope of up to 60%; but it required innovation to avoid an accumulation of water in a given place, and to distribute the weight correctly.

Moreover, green roofs ensure a high level of water absorption thanks to the plant itself. The remaining water is released into the air by evaporation, or released into the pipes with a delay time. In the absence of plants, does it mean that the roof is less efficient and absorb less water?
