Our responsibility

Nature is our greatest inspiration and we want to inspire people to live a more mindful and sustainable lifestyle. To us this means buying less, buying better and keeping things in use for longer. Designing durable long-lasting products, ethically sourced and certified materials are how we minimize our environmental impact as much as possible.

Design philosophy

At Piccalio, we recognize the significance of designing with sustainability in mind. Our design process always begins with the question, "Does the world need this object?" If the answer is yes, then the idea of preserving and passing down kids' furniture and toys for generations to enjoy is at the heart of our design philosophy. We prioritize designs that are versatile and can grow with children, so they don't have to be replaced as they age.

"Good design is as little design as possible."

Materials

We carefully select ethically sourced, high-quality and FSC certified materials for all our products. Our wood is also treated with non-toxic, low-VOC finishes, ensuring that our furniture is safe for children and the environment.

Production

We collaborate closely with some of the most skilled craftsmen in the industry. We produce limited quantities of our products and only increase production if there is sufficient demand. This approach leads to less waste, more intention in production, and conserves energy. As a result, we sometimes need to offer pre-orders, which refers to ordering a product before it is manufactured.

Packaging

We are not perfect. We want to keep learning and find new ways to have a positive impact. 

To ensure all our products arrive to the destination in perfect condition, some of our products are protected with styrofoam. We are currently working on completely removing styrofoam from all our packages. We aim to have 100% plastic-free packaging for all our products by 2024.

CO2 Impact

Nature is our greatest inspiration, and taking care of it is also to have a loving look at our emissions. Today, for every order placed on our website Piccalio offsets all delivery emissions and plants one tree with the non profit organization One Tree Planted.
