|The Enrico Products collection began with a decades old hard cheese grater design borrowed from Enrico Ratti, the grandfather of co-founder Jim Ratti and has naturally been extended to other types of home décor and kitchenware. Enrico Products’ line has continued to expand over the years, adding new collections and a number of new and interesting materials to their already fascinating lineup of tabletop, gourmet, gift and décor items. All their offerings continue to use reclaimed or renewable raw materials and fit naturally into the eco-friendly and sustainable categories popular with so many retailers and consumers.
Later additions to the Enrico line take their cues from the bamboo and fir product attributes: sustainable, reclaimed, environmentally friendly, and “eco-intelligent”, an Enrico-coined term for products that incorporate conscientiously sourced materials in inventive ways to create truly unique products. Many of the designs from the bamboo collection have been reproduced in fast-growing acacia; bamboo root items and hand-collected hardwood root products have been added in recent years; a whole range of products made from highly sustainable mango wood is a current favorite, and there are more reclaimed goods in the works.
