Introducing Tannenboing™, a Modern, Spiral Christmas Tree for a Truly Green Christmas
SEATTLE, WA – October 13, 2010 -- Michele Weingeist has created a modern, spiral Christmas tree (a Tannenboing) for the holiday season. Made from recycled aluminum, Tannenboing is a fresh, hip twist on an old tradition.
When expanded, the aluminum Christmas tree is over six feet tall and four feet wide at the base, and weighs 20 pounds. It has room for over 200 ornaments, cards or display items, Tannenboing makes a statement in the home, office, or store window, then packs flat in a reusable box for easy, space-efficient storage when not in use. Tannenboing’s beautiful, sleek lines are crafted from recycled aluminum and hand finished by a skilled blacksmith in Everett, WA. Each tree is a true work of art.
“Like many people, artificial Christmas trees, made of PVC (polyvinyl chloride) and shipped over from China, don’t appeal to my aesthetic or my ethics. I wanted a modern, sustainable alternative and I couldn’t find one, so I created one for myself. When it was finished, people loved it and it grew from being just a spiral Christmas tree for myself, to Tannenboing for the public.” said Weingeist. “They are sculptural, contemporary and reusable – perfect for a modern, green Christmas.”
Tannenboing has created only 100 signed and number first edition aluminum, spiral Christmas trees for a retail price of $395 plus shipping. Tannenboing can be purchased online at www.Tannenboing.com.
For years, Weingeist searched for an elegant, modern Christmas tree with no luck. Finally, she set out to make her own, encouraged along the way by people’s enthusiasm for the aluminum Christmas tree, she turned her idea into a business. It was important to her that the work be done in the USA in order to keep jobs here and to reduce the carbon footprint of the tree. She is thrilled that the work has taken place within a 30-mile radius of her office.
