Mohair & Kaschmir paper
- story by MaterialDistrict
These paper collections are inspired by the soft fabrics mohair and cashmere. Mohair and Kaschmir paper are both soft to the touch and have an FSC certification.
Mohair is velvety soft and is available in matte or embossed. The paper has a low absorption of ink, and can be used with offset printing, hot foil stamping, silk screen printing and die cutting. Recommended uses include business cards, brochure cover, folders, greeting cards, amongst other things.
Kaschmir is made with 50% cotton, and has a soft, fabric-like feel. The paper is available with two different surfaces: truly velvety (Cloth) or naturally textured (Cotton). Kashmir cloth is velvety and warm like a cashmere shawl. This soft effect is reached by a special procedure merging paper and surface fibres. Cloth is available in white, red and a deep blue in 400 g/m2.
Kashmir Cotton is soft and firm at the same time. This surface appears in a colour range of white, crème and five intense colours in 135, 170 and 250 g/m2. For text uses, the lighter colours are also available in 100 g/m2 with a calendared surface and with matching envelopes.
As a result of the good print behaviour of the lighter paper weights and of the special textile surface, Kaschmir can be universally used for all kinds of text & cover applications.
