What is Naoron paper?
Also known as RPF Naoron, Recycled PET Fiber Naoron is a paper created using the washi-suki paper manufacturing method from recycled polyester fibers from used plastic bottles and textile products. While having the distinctive texture of paper, RPF Naoron does not tear easily and is highly water-resistant. It also does not emit noxious fumes when burned.
Located in Ichikawamisato, Yamanashi, which boasts a 1000 year history of paper making, the Japanese paper (washi) maker ONAO and industrial designer Naoto Fukasawa teamed together to create the SIWA series. Fukasawa recognised that the special texture of Naoron, a hard-to-tear paper developed by ONAO, emerged when the paper was crumpled, and suggested designs for everyday goods that harnessed this.
The name SIWA is both a reversing of the characters in the word washi (wasi), and a word meaning, "crinkle" in Japanese. As with leather goods, these washi products are lovingly, individually crafted.
