We start out our lives with a clean white page, which develops over time as we are given, the chance to create our very own masterpiece. We slowly start to paint our lives into a creative and colourful piece of art, distinct to our individuality and personality. We might paint red when we feel excited, blue when we feel spiritual, yellow for happiness, or green when we feel calm and relaxed, there is a colour for every emotion.
Paperthinks bring colours to your life, and we believe everyone should be able to choose the colours that best represent them, with our aim to fill everyone's lives with happiness and joy.
Our first concept is 'think colour' and with this we believe everyone has the right to pick the colour that influences them the most.
Our second concept 'think green' represents our love for the environment and the surroundings we live in, and there lies the reason behind our use of 100% recycled leather in the creation of our entire range.
We have given you the colours, now its time to create your own masterpiece.
It's a fact that people love leather. In the past however, most people didn't spend much time thinking about where their leather came from or how it was made.
Most leather products came directly from countries where the welfare of the animal was at the bottom of the list of priorities, and the process of adding the tannins to dye the leather often resulted in carcinogenic chromium (VI) polluting the water table.
So time has passed and things have changed, and these days everyone wants to be kinder to the environment, now its fashionable to be 'green' and the days where people didn't think about the food they eat or the clothes they wear have long gone.
Our recycled leather is made from the off cuts, trimmings and shavings from the wastage of other leather manufacturing processes and industrial waste from Asia which ultimately not only reduces the wastage going to landfill sites but also saves animals. Our colour treatment doesn't involve those harmful chemicals that pollute the water table and can be harmful to the consumers and the environment. Instead we use a laminate technique, providing you whith high quality recycled leather in an array of beautiful colours.
