Recycled metals. Check. Recycled bottle glass. Check. Reclaimed shells and fibers. You betcha! At Varaluz, we get caught green handed all the time, as trash is our treasure, working with responsible materials is our way, and creating personality-forward lighting that has inviting textures you can actually see and feel is our passion.
In a world overrun by wastefulness, where people churn out vast mountains of non-biodegradable waste by the hour, our team at Varaluz is putting into practice the very cool philosophy of upcycling. That is, we take waste materials and turn them into products of great practical and decorative value that we know you’ll enjoy. Did you know that we offer our customers a variety of imagination-grabbing lighting choices that are hand-forged and welded from 70% or greater recycled content and utilize virtually all recycled glass? Our compulsion to green our products doesn’t stop there; we use low VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) earth-friendly paints, finishes and resins to spare you from breathing in any fumes that could be injurious to your health, or at the least, smell nasty. Sure, our process for selecting our materials and handcrafting our fixtures may often require hundreds of hours of labor (don’t worry, our craftsmen love every minute) and seem extreme to some, but we’re firm believers that our methods and our commitment to eco-responsibility result in the most beautiful fixtures available. After all, it only takes one look at the recycled bottle glass of our Fascination collection, the natural and sustainable capiz shade panels of our Affinity collection, or the recycled content of most any of our collections, to see that our passion for conservation only enhances our ability to create outstanding lighting.
Ultimately, our lighting fixtures end up capturing your imagination, make you scratch your head asking “How’d they do that?”, and allow you to enjoy the best possible lighting in your home. And only when we’ve accomplished all that are we satisfied that we’ve done our job to the fullest.
