Purely Paper Interior Design By Woodnotes

How would you imagine your home to look if your walls, floors, window coverings, chairs, sofas, and interior accessories were made of paper?  Pretty shabby?  Well, get a glimpse here of what it would look like filled with designs made from Woodnotes' paper yarn textiles.

The Finnish company was founded in 1987 by textile artist Ritva Puotile and her son Mikko.  Now, with a handful of other textile and interior design artists, Woodnotes produces a mind-blowing array of designs made of paper yarn, a specialized natural material made of wood, an ecologically replenishable material. 

The wood fibers in the paper yarn is what make it strong enough to create dense, tough fabric that maintains brilliance and durability.  Paper is also more hygenic than other materials because it doesn't collect dust or dirt, making it a wonderful option for those with allergies.

Yes, paper yarn is tough and dense, but look at how soft and refined these carpets are....
