Innovation – Ocean plastic becomes book cloth
Winter & Company came to see us with a new book covering concept. Using mainly recycled ocean plastic waste which is granulated then woven into a thread they are able to produce the innovative material called ‘Toile Ocean’.
Every year, over 8 million tonnes of plastic are dumped into the ocean, so this was a perfect fit for our own carbon reduction ethos and the expansion of our existing eco-friendly Kraft range. We started to experiment with ring binder, packaging, folder, menu and clipboard coverings to name a few with fantastic results.
Toile Ocean is also certified vegan friendly, we also use specialist cold glue not derived from animal fats to maintain the credentials as part of our manufacturing process.
The back of Toile Ocean is coated with a water-based acrylic. This adds stability to the fabric and impregnation for water/glue permeability.
Available in a variety of colours this inspirational material can support your own business to achieve its sustainability goals and go green.

Versatile paper over board manufacturing!
Book cloth uses the same manufacturing processes as paper over board. Just like our POB ring binders & boxes, book cloth can give a fantastic textured look for that extra luxury.
Paper over board manufacturing is superb for printed products. POB ring binders can be manufactured to almost any size, allowing you to get a perfect binder every time. Printed sheets can be finished in gloss or matt laminate, or in a specialist soft-touch or anti-scuff laminate for extra durability.
