Is it 100% made in France?
Yes, our Oriculi is made entirely in France!
Our bioplastic is 100% derived from castor oil. The castor oil plants are grown sustainably in India, and the beans are processed in France. The oil then goes to our plastic maker, who's based about 150 miles from our head office. We worked on the 3D form with him, and he made the plastic injection mould on his premises. This type of machinery represents an investment of around €30,000 – which is 20% higher than the same machinery made in China. We made a choice, and this choice does have a financial cost, but it was important for us to minimize our carbon footprint and support French craftsmanship.
