Natuzzi furthers eco push

Natuzzi has furthered its sustainability push with a collection of paper-based rugs.

Papel is part of the Second Life concept the company revealed in the summer.

Created by design studio Àr.o, it is Andrea Steidl and Raquel Pacchini’s first collaboration with the manufacturer.

Papel is made from internationally certified FSC and PEFC paper yarns.

There are three three sizes and two colour options. Handmade, they are subsequently protected by an industrial dirt-resistant treatment, making them easy to clean. This process forms a protective film on the surface of the rug that prevents dirt from being absorbed by the paper fibres.

Second Life saw the introduction of a vegan alterative to leather; fabric primarily made up of paper fibre joined to a nylon-flocked chenille fabric on the back and fabric yarn combining wool and recycled PES.
