Textile Pulp and Botanical Fibers

From ancient to modern times, flax and hemp have been widely appreciated for their natural look and touch, ecological footprint and unique properties.

For over 60 years, we have been refining our process to transform flax and hemp fibers. Today, we are one of the world’s largest suppliers, consistently delivering reliable, high-quality papermaking pulp around the globe.

Using raw materials carefully sourced in Europe, we craft these special pulps at our Saint Girons facility in France, offering a variety of alternatives to wood pulp.

Moreover, through our LeafLAB, we are creating a new category of materials for the packaging industry: paper essentially made of botanicals and plants!

As a result, we produce botanical fibers to use as the pulp component for specialty and sensory paper materials. Our fibers are made of plant by-products, such as cocoa shells, spent tea leaves, coffee chaffs and beer grain.
