Description: 

Remake is the most recent addition to Favini's upcycling ecological paper range, using as much as 25% of pulp material from discarded residue of the leather manufacturing process. This revolutionary process has won the European Paper Recycling Awards 

Launched in 2015, this innovative paper also includes 40% of post-consumer FSC certified recycled fibre and only 35% of virgin FSC certified fibre.

The result is a valuable, recyclable and 100% compostable paper, which guarantees excellent printing and converting performance. The leather residues remain visible to the surface giving a distinctive and surprisingly velvety tactile effect and is suitable for even the most demanding creative projects.
