This innovative natural material is made from cellulose fibre and is a popular leather and fabric alternative that tends to be used to make wallets, bags and pouches.
Washable paper has become a favoured sustainable material amongst designers due to its longlist of appealing qualities. Not only is it cruelty-free and eco-friendly but it is lightweight, breathable and versatile with the most notable feature being present in its name – water-resistance.
Unlike conventional paper, the fibres are fabricated with a small amount of synthetic latex so that the finished material does not deform, discolour or dissolve in water; it truly is capable of being washed without impacting its performance.
Washable paper also has high tear-resistance that allows it to be reused, as well as recycled, giving the material a long lifespan.
