What can happen when a sheet of paper is processed for two years? It gives shape to Map the Ballerina. Map the Ballerina, it is not a doll or a toy, but a shoe. Yes, a paper ballerina, but not of a common paper, but a special paper that makes it waterproof, breathable and recyclable. Not only ballet flats but also sneakers and many other highly accessories sustainable!
The line Map uses paper as a raw material. It is water resistant, made with recyclable materials like polypropylene or its 100% recyclable TR sole. Not only that, the packaging is also made of recycled and recyclable cardboard to reduce the impact of the packaging. The novelty does not end there. The shoe, designed by three young minds from Lucca, can also be customized.
