fact sheet

  • Mementos of the South Pacific’ are 100% made in Aotearoa.
  • The designs each originated as a carving. We then utilize a molding technique and use recycled material to create these beautifully crafted mementos.
  • Due to the nature of recycled material each memento tends to harness its own individuality. You may see a slight colour differentiation or unique air bubble giving each memento an original twist.
  • The recycled material Mamarua uses is a recycled synthetic resin, and using a process of molding, the material can be molded into the designed forms you see. The recycled material has numerous variations within it therefore the process of drying, re-grinding and screening is critical. The actual recycled material itself is waste / scrap from other molded products like display stands, covers, plastic components etc. The scrap is collected, chipped and screened – it is a lot more time consuming than using virgin material and if we didn't use it would go into our landfills.
