Cotton is probably the most familiar of the tree-free fibers and with good reason. From a quality standpoint, no other fiber yields paper with such a luxurious feel and unique texture. This becomes obvious to you (and your client) the moment your fingers touch the surface. What’s more, cotton paper is much stronger than wood-pulp based papers and won’t yellow over time.
Aside from being a highly renewable plant, it’s interesting to note that the cotton used to manufacture the papers is not the cotton used in clothing, but rather the linters - a byproduct of the textile industry that may otherwise be discarded and end up in a landfill. This recovered material is salvaged and used to create our cotton papers. Recycled cotton, from discarded garments for example, is also available further reducing the impact.
