What is flexible, sturdy, costs practically nothing, gets thrown around, and is taken for granted? If you think that cardboard is basically useless, think again.

When “Cartonist” Bertrande Durand-Jenny created her atelier Les Cartonnistes Associés in 2003 in Paris, everyone else was either recycling cardboard or throwing it out.
