Domingo Tótora’s bowls

The beauty of Domingo Tótora’s work not only manifests itself in the final product that one might acquire, but in the process itself. From the designer’s philosophy and respect of the environment, the location of the studio and the way the work is produced, all the way to the final product. NA certified sustainable process, recycled cardboard is broken up into small pieces and turned into a pulp that serves as the base material for bowls, furniture, objects and sculptural pieces that are molded by hand, dried in the sun and finished to perfection. In this beautiful and labor intensive process, the cardboard which originated as wood, essentially is brought back full cycle by taking on a wood-like quality again.

Sustainability happens through actions and not words.
