A significant portion of Stonesets International’s operating expenses are on wood cut-offs in various shapes and sizes and other scraps lying around the factory. These are the sources of inspiration for the sustainable production of ROCO-CO. The unused materials are sorted out, cut to the desired shape, and assembled according to the pattern of the design using eco-friendly white glue as adhesive. The item goes through a manual sanding process and a coat of sealer provides a finishing touch.

ROCO-CO is a showcase of how sustainable benefits are derived from waste and scrap materials consuming a considerable space in the factory. It is designed by Wataru Sakuma, a Japanese designer working for the company since 2004 doing lamps, wall arts and tapestry using handmade paper.

Stonesets International is in the direction of doing sustainable design. Apart from using indigenous and scrap materials and venturing into a cleaner production, it also provides livelihood opportunity to a group of housewives living within the district where its factory is located. The company trains these housewives to make use of their time without neglecting family responsibilities by creating useful items from scrap material like old newspapers, magazines, and scraps from the factory.
