About our Materials

Handmade Cotton Paper

Our handmade cotton paper is made from a variety of cotton that would be considered waste. This “waste” consists of scrap broadcloth (from the apparel industry), cotton that is not up to the standard for use on apparel, and finally recycled linters. All of these materials are ground, made into a slurry and then pressed to remove the excess water. It is then formed into paper. All of the waste water is recycled. The company that makes our material is socially responsible.

BioBOPP

BioBOPP is an oxo-biodegradable and recyclable film, capable of being processed into flat bags, header bags, and more. Made from the starch from rice, potatoes, or corn, BioBOPP is virtually indistinguishable from traditional BOPP and features excellent gloss, clarity, seal strength, and shelf life. These materials are FDA and EC approved.

PET

PET is a popular package for food and non-food products. Manufacturers use PET plastic to package products because of its strength, thermo-stability and transparency. Customers choose PET because it is inexpensive, lightweight, resealable, shatter-resistant and recyclable.

Technical description Polyethylene terephthalate, commonly abbreviated PET, PETE, or the obsolete PETP or PET-P, is a thermoplastic polymer resin of the polyester family and is used in synthetic fibers; beverage, food and other liquid containers; thermoforming applications; and engineering resins often in combination with glass fiber. The term polyethylene terephthalate is a source of confusion because this substance, PET, does not contain polyethylene. Thus, the alternate form, poly (ethylene terephthalate), is often used in scholarly journals for the sake of accuracy and clarity.
