Previously we provided reusable metal rings for binding, however through our ongoing research into more planet-friendly ways we can run this business we have decided to ditch the metal rings.
We have gone with recycled cotton twine which is made from dead-stock textile waste in a family factory near Barcelona and FSC Tassie Oak.
The textile waste is broken down back into combed cotton fibre, colours are blended and respun into new thread – there is no dyeing involved in this process. This product is made overseas so does need to take a trip to get to Australia – however at this stage there are no recycled cotton twine manufacturers in Aus. Eventually we’re looking forward to creating our own recycled twine from textile waste in Australia.
You have the simple task of taking a moment at the end of each month to gently remove the front page using the perforated line and voilà your new month is ready to go! You can also use your reusable metal rings from previous calendars.
