Graypants...Environmentally Responsible
and Visually Spectacular 


Headquartered in Seattle, the Graypants design studio focuses on solving problems and collaborating with clients and retail partners worldwide. Made from cardboard and other reclaimed materials, their lighting products are environmentally and socially responsible, every step of the way. The ethical production of their lights is just as important to them as locally sourcing all of their cardboard. Graypants partners with social works programs in their Holland facility to employ workers. Through these partnerships, individuals with disabilities are able to learn about recycling while developing a skill working with their hands.
