Optics & haptics like leather – but vegan
Our premium kraft paper is an innovative further development of our previous kraft paper towards a new, stronger variant that is even more similar to real leather. The material ensures a high-quality look that can be combined in many ways. The material is thicker and firmer, making it ideal for clear shapes, such as the new livia bag and LINA smartphone bag. For softer shapes such as MILA, we continue to rely on the thinner material, as this is where the best look is achieved.
Just like our normal paper collection, the premium kraft paper is made of a sustainable and vegan material made in Germany. The tear-resistant paper is developed from plant fibers and solidified with latex.
The kraft paper used is often referred to as paper leather, as it comes very close to the appearance and function of leather. In contrast to conventional artificial leather, our kraft paper is more natural & sustainable.
The material is robust and easy to clean.
Since the base of the kraft paper is made of natural materials, there is hardly any wear and tear of the material compared to synthetic leather even after a long time. The material is water-repellent and at the same time dirt can be easily washed off the surface.
Our paper collection is therefore durable, tear-resistant and water-repellent.
Natural Material & Durable Design
Why is our paper a sustainable, vegan and environmentally friendly material?
Our kraft paper consists mostly of natural fibres and is solidified with latex. It is free of pentachlorophenol, PVC or BPA and is therefore neither harmful to the environment nor health.
Nordlicht Bags and backpacks made of kraft paper are designed in such a way that they are still portable even after many years. The material is not only robust but also resistant to all dirt particles. That’s why our kraft paper is the perfect leather alternative.
