What is paper cord? Hans Wegner and other Scandinavian furniture makers, first used paper cord in the 1940's, after the war when materials were in short supply. It is a 3-ply fibre that is natural and an extremely durable material. Treated with a light wax coating prior to weaving, the natural color is made from pure unbleached paper whilst the black cord is dyed prior. All paper cord is sustainable, completely biodegradable and eco-friendly.

Paper cord seats require minimal care, are cool and comfortable and they will gain a patina over time. It is very hard wearing when woven correctly. For cleaning, it simply needs a wipe with a damp cloth and a neutral soap lye, but not too often as that can wear the fibres.
