– Paper is a good option due to the fact that it’s based on the Swedish forestry. The project investigates if it’s possible to recycle the paper fabric like we are recycling regular paper, says Lena-Marie Jensen, Coordinator Business Innovation, at Smart Textiles.
As the population of the world increases every year, as does the need for textile. To prevent environmental consequences because of the growing need, it requires a sustainable fabric cycle. Fabric made of paper is one step in the right direction. Lena-Marie says that she believes paper fabric will be an option on the market in about three years.
