High-tech inside, low-tech outside – Papernomad is the first manufacturer of laptop and iPad sleeves made from a compostable paper-composite.
It’s made entirely from renewable resources. At the core of the sleeves lies a sandwich of several layers of paper and a bio-polymer membrane.
According to the Viennese company, the eco-sleeves are even tear-resistant.
Despite all the marketing-clever memento-nostalgia it remains to be seen if the recordable paper sleeves won’t outstrip electronic devices as the preferred storage medium.
It is not so much the ecological aspect that constitutes the competitive edge of the product, according to Papernomad’s product-designer Christoph Rochna, it is more about their “identity”: they tell their owners’ stories in the form of notes, prints, stamps and stickers.
“The sleeves document our past through accidental marks and traces left on them. We immortalize memories on paper; that is what makes our products unique”
In this era of iPhone-uniformity, sleeves and covers for mobile electronic devices become a differentiation-tool within a jumble of good tastes.
Besides a wide range of choices – from leopard patterns to elegant leather cases – contemporary products demand ecological sensibility because ‘green’ is no longer the emblem of the fundie but the fashion of all connoisseurs of life.
Papernomads unite fashion and idealism. Imagine a tear resistant envelope made from several layers of paper, a bio-polymer membrane and a lining made of wool.
Papernomad sleeves leave a lasting impression on the user, but none on the environment: the outer skin acts as a paper-canvas to collect your memories and when the life of the device comes to an end, the envelope can do the same – it’s bio-degradable.
