Paper is one of the most common materials all over the world.
The first precursor to modern papery has been found in China, around the II century BC.
Since then it’s become a stable presence in our daily lives: everytime we read, write or clean up we probably have some paper in our hands.
Made by fibres of cellulose pulp coming from wood, rags or grass, it’s a clean and sustainable material…
…as long as it comes from sustainable sources!
Papery consumption increased by the 400% in the last 40 years, leading to deforestation and material abuse.
Therefore, it’s important to limit the consumption and to choose sustainable sources. That’s why Kibelis uses only the following kinds of paper.

Types of paper

Kibelis uses FSC paper for its products

FSC® Fibers Paper

FSC® stands for Forest Stewardship Council and is an international certification provided to set standards on every product based on forests’ resources.

All the paper reporting this certification guarantees a sustainable source, with a production process that assures strict environmental, social and economical standards.

The FSC® paper might come from new cellulose or recycled: we always prefer the second one.

Kibelis uses FSC Venice Seaweed paper for its products

Shiro Alga Carta (Venice Seaweed)

Favini’s Shiro Alga Carta is a paper born to solve two different problems within a single solution.

The first problem was the deforestation, whereas the second was the accumulation of seaweed in Venice. A mix of factor caused an abnormal bloom of algae in the Venetian Lagoon: so, what better than to find a green application of all that seeweed?

Shiro Alga Carta reduces the utilization of new cellulose and helps to clean up one among the most scenic cities in Italy and in the world.

Kibelis uses FSC kiwifruit surpluses paper for its products

Kiwifruit Surpluses Paper

Would you have ever imagined to read from a Kiwifruit?

Well, now you can, thanks to the special paper made of its surplus.

And the results are surprisingly fascinating. The paper indeed has not just a FSC® certification and a good impact on the deforestation, but it also has an eye-catching look and a natural texture that keeps visible its green shades and kiwifruit’s filaments.
