Denim to Paper
We make most of our paper from recycled denim. According to Textile World, the average Australian buys 27kg of new textiles per year and then discards about 23kg to landfill. Two-thirds of the discards include synthetics and won't decompose.
Making paper from denim is very closely related to the original papermaking methods used in Europe and America when old cotton rags were used for paper manufacturing.Learn more
