As a company, marketing and events are bound to come up on your agenda. Tarpaulin banners are typically used as promotional material and felt carpets are utilized to fancy-up the event space. If you are looking to expand on your sustainable efforts as a corporation, Biji Biji offers services to upcycle your own materials. These banners and felt carpets that are bound to end up in the trash after living a short, monotonous life can be rescued and turned into functional (and stunning!) accessories - presentable as corporate gifts to guests and VIPs alike.
Feeling overwhelmed with choices? Don’t worry! Biji Biji has got your back as we break down our top 5 sustainable corporate gift options for your convenience:
There’s a certain reason as to why tarpaulin banners are a typical go-to for advertisements - and it’s the same reasons we upcycle them at Biji Biji. Its highly-resistant material can withstand rain, heat, strong winds, and has a beautiful shiny finish to it. Perfect for upcycling!
Also, since there’s always an abundance of these banners used by companies, it is the perfect material to upcycle and can make a relatively significant and positive impact on the waste it creates. No two banners are ever the same, so owners of Biji Biji’s Banner products can take pride with the knowledge that there is no other bag in the entire world that is the same as theirs.
Biji Biji has worked with multiple companies including Bank Muamalat , British Council and Rainforest World Music Festival to produce banner products - customized to their need, using their OWN banners that they provided us to work with. This gives a personalized touch to corporate gifts - the perfect addition to sustainable and ethically made products!
The Iris Folder - no two folders are identical
Undoubtedly unique, the Iris Folder is upcycled from none other than Tarpaulin Banners. The Iris is trippy at first glance, with a banner design adorning its body and is perfect to spice up your office stationery line. With different splashes of colour that add life to the folder, keep all documents and important certification crisp and clean with the Iris.
Quince Passport Holder
Quince Passport Holder - ready to revolutionize airport style
This upcycled passport holder comes in a range of designs (of course - all banners are unique to their own design). The Quince is curated carefully to meet the measurements of a standard passport and is a great option as a gift because it fits the basic criteria of gifting 101 - something functional and great to have.
Felt is essentially pressed and condensed fibres, which completely explains the pulpy feel of the material. It is commonly described as durable and fashionable (This should be of no surprise as felt often adorns the hallways of grand events.) Typically, felt comes in bold and bright colours. Imagine a yellow carpet - that’s the kind of stunning colour that is associated with these carpet materials. Picture that on pouches and clutches and folders!
Biji Biji views felt material as a canvas of opportunities - thus we came up with a line of stunningly distinctive felt products from clutch bags to pouches.
