The sheets of paper are stacked by hand, alternating the direction of the paper to achieve the best possible balance and stability. They are then hot-pressed to bind them together and create a strong material. This process allows to have a machinable plate (drilling, tapping,...) while being dense, homogeneous and without void. But also to bring an aesthetic marbled and soft with a feeling of leather in the hand.
This innovative material is used in new applications such as furniture, restaurant tables, worktops, kitchen doors, signage, cladding or even knife handles!
