IGFF STATUETTES – SECOND-HAND BEAUTY

Everything we do during IGFF is according to “green values”. That’s why, we couldn’t forget about eco-friendly statuettes for the winners of the Festival.We are proud to present statuettes made from recycled … garbage, and more precisely from theplastic botlles caps. Giving things a second life is an activity which brings us a lot of satisfaction.

Every single statuette was made of 1200 caps, which were melted at temperature of 120 Celsius degrees, and then poured into a special form. Then, after solidification and polishing, they are served as material for the most desirable object of the Festival.
