Bespoke colour creation in our in-house laboratory 

Thanks to our creative in-house laboratory we can stay ahead of the trend and offer our customers the exact shade of coloured paper they require. Our flagship Kaleido® range comprises over 200 shades of coloured tissue paper. We add a dozen new hues each year – from ivory to daffodil yellow, Indian green, Tahiti blue or sugared almond pink.
Our factory produces 29,000 tonnes of tissue paper per year, in widths ranging from 12 to 280cm, and 15.5 to 26 GSM.

Our wood fibre wadding is 100% biodegradable

Our tissue is made from natural raw materials – wood fibres – and therefore biodegradable and recyclable. It decomposes faster than non-woven products.
