Paper may seem to have limited potential, but it is still getting plenty of notice at markets and trade shows. That’s why—by late 2016—we believe that paper will be the newest must-have material.
Paper is more versatile than you might imagine. It can be repurposed, recycled, shaped, cut and layered. It can be as thin and delicate as tissue or as thick and sturdy as corrugated. Gifts and lighting will use paper the most, including for seasonal items, but there is potential for furniture, too. Mixing seaweed and paper results in a sturdy, cork-like material.
However you use it, remember that doesn’t take a lot of paper to tell consumers you are on-trend.
