How It's Made

Using 100% Australian Materials


Granules come from Melbourne

Manufacturing in Western Sydney

Printing in Sydney Metropolitan

It was important to us to use materials that are durable, flexible and recyclable. We have a responsibility for the NEXTGEN. The FoilerOre is surprisingly flexible and lightweight. 

This is a credit to the Australian partners we selected who share our environmental values. 


Features & Benefits of the FoilerOre
