Designed and made in France by Litogami out of recycled or PEFC/FSC papers, Casagami come in many different styles – from a New York-style Brownstone designed for the MoMA store to a typical Parisian residence. But Litogami founder Marc Lebas told us that he hopes people will take advantage of the designs’ blank spaces to put their own unique spins on each Casagami.

Casagami come flat-packed and are very lightweight, so they can be mailed easily. Assembling the pre-cut and pre-folded houses is very simple and is an educational process that can teach children about alternative energy and the importance of saving energy. Lebas says that exposing the 22x 37mm solar panel included inside each Casagami for five hours can allow the LED light to shine for five hours.
In addition to its sustainable message, Casagami is a vehicle for social justice as well. Litogami employs people with special needs to make Casagami through a workshop for the handicapped in the suburbs of Paris.
Casagami start at $8.12 and can be purchased at Litogami’s Etsy shop.
