We were knocked out when our new pop-up unit arrived at the office last week, courtesy of Xanita. We love the look of this eco-happy material. It’s such strong stuff, we can see it being happily lugged from one event to the next. Xanita isn’t cardboard, nor is it timber – but a hybrid value-added kraft composite board, intelligently manufactured from recycled cardboard box and sugar cane waste.
 Xanita is perfect for exhibitions, shop fitting, point-of-sale displays, flat packed furniture and a ton of other applications.


Our first pop-up experience happened within minutes of assembling this baby – in collaboration with Label Orange at their Christmas season pop-up in Salt Circle Arcade, Woodstock (Cape Town) on Friday night. It’s on until the 15th, if you want to put on your shopping boots and go cool hunting.
