Reclaimed Denim Fiber Laminate: real denim fibers embedded in décor paper

Inspired by a global interest in denim and how to recycle the mass consumption of blue jeans; Formica Group was motivated to create a new kind of industrial paper. Made from real reclaimed denim fiber from cloth production mills, the overlay paper for Reclaimed Denim Fiber features 60 percent post-industrial denim fiber. Reclaimed Denim Fiber laminate is available in Jeans finish, typical denim diagonal twill that adds true-to-touch realism with a directional texture i.e. JN (jeans) Finish. Due to the unique paper making process, no two sheets of Reclaimed Denim Fiber laminates are exactly alike.
