Announcement   Crea-re offers self-designed and handmade products: lamps and recycled music bags. Name of our brand derives from creation, creativity “CREA” and from recycling “RE”. It means that we focus mainly on the process of creation, creativity of our ideas and on the recycling of unwanted objects.

Each project is unique – we concentrate on making small series of items, which number is limited. Choosing our brand you know that you will have something truly original.

Many of our projects are made from recycled materials: like lamps made from unwanted newspapers, lamps from clips, shelves from wood which was doomed to be thrown out, bags made from old truck tarpaulin. We are against disposing of things. Crea-re gives a second life to the objects.

Our design is in 100% eco-friendly. We use only water-based varnish and beeswax finish in our wood products. Lamps designed by Crea-re requires only ecological – energy-saving and led source of light.

All our products are hand-made in Poland and Spain, with high quality materials and fine terminations.
Sometimes and only for your bags, we get help from DUO. It happened when we receive a big order-more than 20 bags- so we get help in sewing from DUO, a small company from Poland, 10 min by bike from my home town. In this case Marco realizes all the process (project, cutting, assembling etc)except the sewing. Mrs Teresa and her little staff from DUO sew us our bag. So if you order a big amount of bag we please you be patience.
I believe in this collaboration because is Km0 and made with neighbors.
I believe that properly designed interiors have a positive impact on our mood and state of mind.

Second lamp from the newest Morphe lamp collection. Made with paper mache and with the natural pigment Green from Vagone.
I am so excited to present you the new collection of paper mache lamps called "Morphe"! In Greek it means shape and it can have many connotations with the zoomorphic and amorphous shapes like eggs, amoebas, oblong stones riddled by sea waves.

About

From Art to Design

We are a couple of designers: my name is Maria and I'm Polish - I project eco-friendly lighting and Marco - Italian - makes bags for musical instruments.
At a certain point of our lives we decided to change our jobs and start to make something which we really wanted to do!

I was studying Art History in Poland and in Italy. I always liked art: painting, architecture and the most of all sculpture. At the end of my studies I noticed that pure theory was not enough for me but I didn’t know what exactly the thing which makes me happy was. I tried to do many things in my life. I was working in a bar, as a clerk, art critique, carousel operator and finally after a few years of searching I understood.

I always liked to draw, to design something – a bag, wallet, bracelet, cushion etc. In general, I liked to work with my own hands because it was giving me a lot of fun, to create an object (sometimes pretty but sometimes not) which I could use afterwards. This passion or hobby has now become my full time job.

Also Marco decided to change his job - he is a biologist but most of his time he was working as a Italian teacher. He was always very passionate about music and design. As a musician - he plays drums, guitar and piano - he noticed the lack of colorful and original bags for instruments. He decided to project a guitar case for himself from the material which was colorful, resistant and also ecological. In this way the first projects made out of publicity banners arise.

What kind of light bulb should I use?

Our paper pulp lamps are designed for use with LED bulbs only which are safer than the energy saving bulbs because they don't contain Mercury.

Pendant lamps recquire the bulb with max. 20 Watt, it is totally safe then. The 20 Watt LED bulb makes as much light as 100 Watt incandescent traditional bulb. Normally we use 60 Watt incandecsent bulb to illuminate our spaces, which is an equivalent of 11 Watt LED bulb.

With desk lamps you can use LED bulbs with max. 10Watt.
We suggest to use LED bulbs with warm white color - this color looks more natural than the cold white and is more similar to the color of traditional bulb.

Our pendant lamps require bulbs with E27 ending, desk lamps require bulbs with E14 ending.

How can I clean the lamp?

You can clean our lamps with a dry brush or with a vacuum cleaner set at the lowest speed.

How much time it will take you to prepare the lamp?

All of our lamps are made for order. I will need around 2 weeks to prepare it for you.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Let me know if you want to send the item as a gift. I will wrap them with decorative paper and with colourful cord.
