Project Description

Cardboard shopping bag – riAlto™ _Shopper

Grifal introduces the riAlto™ line, an original range of protective packaging with an elegant design developed for minimal environmental impact.

The name riAlto™ refers to the element that unites all the products in this line. They are made with cArtù a new type of corrugated cardboard created by technological innovation. The geometry of its waveform is that of the arch, used by architects  to build bridges throughout history.

The riAlto™_Shopper box is a cardboard shopping bag that consists of two components: the oval base and the band of cArtù (that has been half-cut to support the bottom and to give it its oval shape). The pre-attached ribbon handles are for easy transport and an elegant touch. This bag is easy to assemble and disassemble, visually appealing, elegant.

This cardboard shopping bag can be customized by using different colors of paper, using printed paper or even adding a bow or ribbon to suit any occasion. Is multi-purpose infact it can be used to package clothing, accessories, bottles or other articles.

The elegant riAlto™_Shopper:

  • Can be supplied disassembled for logistics savings;
  • Easy to assemble, the entire box is made from cArtù with no glue or tape needed for assembly;
  • Reusable;
  • Recyclable;
  • Lightweight;
  • Customizable.

cArtù is a new kind of corrugated cardboard with a revolutionary design. The innovative profile of its extra high waveform makes it super-light and shock absorbing. It can be used for protection and presentation because it’s simultaneously rigid along one axis, flexible along the other and thick enough to absorb major shocks. 

cArtù is endowed with exceptional characteristics​: 

Shock AbsorbingThanks to its arch-like waveform and elevated wave heightcArtù™ has a high level of shock absorption so it can replace commonly used plastic shipping materials with no loss of protection​.

Aesthetic appeal and Italian designcArtù is attractive, simply elegant and emotionally expressive.​

Resistance: The structural strength along the flute axis is 30% greater than a product of the same form made with traditional corrugated cardboard. 

Eco-friendly: A product made of cArtù uses about 40% less material than the same sized container would need if it were made with traditional corrugated cardboard.​

Second life:  After its first use, cArtù can be repurposed for secondary uses.
