material: naoron paper
Siwa is a collaboration between the Japanese papermaker Onao and designer Naoto Fukasawa. The Siwa products are made from Naoron, a special type of paper developed by Onao consisting of a mixture of wood pulp and synthetic fibers. For this they are using an ancient Japanese production technique washi-suki. There are two types Naoron: Soft Naoron, a mixture of wood pulp and polyolefin that the material soft and flexible structure gives and RPF Naoron (Recycled Fiber Mesh Naoron), paper pulp which polyester fibers from used plastic bottles and textiles residues are added.
This material is very strong; waterproof and resistant to cracking, and keeps the characteristic texture of paper.
