Alm was created as an attempt to reinterpret old fashioned traditions in a modern light. It was once common to have bottles of milk delivered to the front door. The milk came from a farm nearby and the empty glass bottles were placed outside for reuse. Today, many consumers are drinking alternatives to milk such as soy milk, rice milk, and almond milk. Alm takes on the natural shape of the almond and invites the idea that containers or vessels are meant to be kept and reused, not discarded.
