About the Material

What is Washable Paper?

Washable Paper – Looks like leather, washes like fabric, made from paper.
The Papercutz collection is designed with a sustainable vegan leather material called Washable Paper. The material is made in Germany under FSC Certification and Oeko-Tex Standard 100. Washable Paper is manufactured from 100% cellulose fibres and guaranteed no harmful substances are used during the entire production process, plus the material contains no Pentachlorophenol, PVC or BPA. Along with this and being dyed with vegetable dyes it makes Washable Paper food safe.

It’s also called vegan leather because it mimics the look and function of animal leather but of course is totally cruelty-free. It looks and feels like leather, thanks to the stretching of the
eco-cellulose fibres during the manufacturing process.

Washable Paper is one kind of vegan leather being a plant-based natural leather. Unlike synthetic leather, Washable Paper is natural, which makes it 100% biodegradable and recyclable yet sustainable, lightweight yet durable and eco-friendly. It’s also water resistant so can withstand difficult weather conditions while staying flawless. Washable Paper has a high tear resistant and completely machine washable.

Don’t label the label!
Initially used solely for the labels on the back of jeans, Washable Paper has some unique qualities that deserve to be highlighted: fresh off the roll it resembles firm card and is a great material to make sturdy objects such as wallets, book covers or boxes. But after being washed, you are rewarded with a soft, textured-look and a leathery aged finish. Now it can be crafted into bags, cosmetic pouches, backpacks, totes and all sorts of home decor objects that are water-resistant, durable, extraordinarily tear-resistant and won’t fray, shrink or fade!

For all of the above advantages, Washable Paper is a great alternative for genuine leather
and synthetic.
