Asked how the idea for this design "Post Herbum Packaging" was born, K. Asvice states that she turned to Lithuanian culture and traditions. Whole herbs by their purity and fragility inspired to create a unique packaging for them. The main aim was to create an attractive and convenient package for whole herbs grown in Lithuania.

"The main design of the box is made by using eco-friendly double-sided brown paper, the color and material of which perfectly match the goal of environmentally friendly packaging. Die cut of the boxes was invented in a such way that the boxes are folded in a simple way, without gluing or fixing parts. Sleeves are also folded without gluing. Design includes the solution of such tasks as usability, functionality and environmental friendliness, " – VTDK alumni reveals the specifics of the packaging.
