Earth-Conscious Papermaking

100% Recycled

The cotton in our paper comes from recycled off-cuts sourced from the textile industry in south India, which helps to reduce the waste which would otherwise become landfill.

100% Tree-Free

Cotton is the only raw material used in our paper, a natural source of strong and long fibres which is also naturally acid-free, perfect for paper with a high permanence.

100% Zero Waste

Our papermaking starts with a recycled material and ends with recycled waste too. After use, our papermaking water is treated and reused in our papermaking and in our gardens. Our paper off-cuts are also used to help strengthen subsequent production batches.
