'Karta-Pack' is the name of an innovative material that's made from 100% post-consumer material, such as recycled cotton fibers from discarded jeans and t-shirts.

The hybrid material boasts the comforting feel of cotton, as well as the durability of plastic, which makes it ideal for use as a packaging material, especially in high-end applications. As well as lending a luxurious look and feel to nestable and stackable product packaging solutions, the Karta-Pack pulp helps to recycle millions of cotton clothing items annually that would otherwise completely go to waste.

Beyond packaging for a variety of consumer products, the 100% compostable and waste-based innovative material may even be able to give form to molded furniture designs that are strong and supportive, yet also feel soft like fabric.
