Ecology

For us, building a great company means making decisions about design and production that we are proud to share. With this in mind, we work to make sure all of our products have that extra touch of something special. With care from how our products are made, how they are packaged, to how they interact with your everyday life, we want our goods to bring you inspiration, provoke thought and spark conversation.

Cards, Prints & Posters

We produce our prints with EM Letterpress and Aardvark Letterpress, two craft-driven letterpress printers based in North Attleboro, MA and Los Angeles, CA respectively. Both print shops have been huge supporters of Holstee since the beginning.

Our designs are printed using low VOC and non-toxic inks on bamboo and cotton papers that are both chlorine and acid-free.

Frames

In 2013, we meet the team at Urban Ashes and were inspired by their work with reclaimed wood, as well as their approach to training and working with formerly incarcerated individuals.

Our frames are handcrafted from reclaimed wood taken from deconstructed homes and buildings in the Detroit Metro Area. The frames themselves are put together in Ann Arbor, MI.

We are proud that through our work with Urban Ashes, we are able to give both the wood of these frames, and the craftsman and women who assemble them, a second chance.

Decal

Our self-adhesive Manifesto Decal is produced by Riverworks Printing in Greenland, NH. The decal is printed onto biodegradable PVC-free polyester using eco-solvent, low VOC inks. The unique adhesive we use (designed to be posted and removed up to 100 times!) is phthalate-free and won’t damage your walls.

Wallets

One of our original designs, the Upcycled Wallet is made of 100% vegan materials: upcycled newspapers and plastic bags. Using these otherwise unwanted materials provides the impoverished collectors with fair wage employment while simultaneously reducing waste in Delhi. Sent to you in 100% recycled and biodegradable packaging, no two wallets are alike!
