A statement of love for the planet
Orikomi is an eco-friendly lighting brand that develops handcrafted products using the origami technique.
The brand was initially created in November 2013 as a pop-up store, with the main goal to raise funds for a non-profitable organization – Adobe for Women (aimed to support 20 women to build their own adobe houses). In January 2014, having the brand become so successful, the founders Ana Morgado and Carmo Caldeira decided to continue with Orikomi and it turned out to be the best decision they have ever made.
The Orikomi products are carefully handcrafted in Lisbon, Portugal, using high quality paper and having a great variety of colours and possible conjugations. These lamps are eco-friendly, require a low energy consumption (can only be used with LED or energy saving bulb) and are totally recyclable.
Since 2019 Orikomi offers a carbon free shipping. The brand has a partnership with Carbonfund.org, a company that ensures the offset of Orikomi shipping carbon footprint by supporting projects such as the Amazon forest conservation or the contaminated water treatment in Kenya.
Following up this carbon-free shipping initiative, Orikomi also provides an ecological packaging, using only compostable and recycled materials.
