FSC-Certified Millboard (Paper Industry By-Product), Recyclable

Obakki partners with artisans around the world to curate their collection of modern lifestyle goods. Their products are made by artisans in small batches and built on a foundation of sustainable partnerships. We created a packaging suite that reflects the sustainability and artisanal quality that define Obakki.

A custom set of boxes and inserts engineered by Arithmetic package the full spectrum of Obakki’s product offering.

The warm materiality of the millboard packaging was selected to reflect the artisanal, hand-made quality of the products held within. Millboard is a by-product of paper production, making use of a material that would otherwise become waste. The inserts inside each box create a platform to display the products, creating an elevated unboxing experience. The box is adorned with a deep blind deboss and white foiled text. Insert cards created with a rich, tactile card stock are tucked inside each box and showcase key product information. 

The boxes can be kept and reused to store precious home goods and jewelry, or recycled with ease.
