Danish Paper Cord

original danish manufacturer quality

Danish Paper Cord, or Danish Paper Rope

Original quality, same manufacturer than Carl Hansen!

Paper cord was, and still is, used for braided chair seats and backrests of many designer furniture, like e.g. Hans J. Wegners Wishbone Chair CH24 made from Carl Hansen & Søn, also Finn Juhl, Kaare Klint, Poul Kjærholm, Jorgen Baekmark and much more.
Hans J. Wegner first used paper cord on his designs back in 1949. He chose this material because it is incredibly durable and also as natural as the wood it was to be weaved around.

Our paper cord is treated with a light wax coating prior to weaving in order to make it more resistant to discoloration and grease.
We sell three different colors: natural, black and white. The natural color is made from pure, unbleached paper, whereas the black is dyed prior to weaving. The white color is bleached natural paper cord.
There are no recycled materials in paper cord, since the color variations from recycled paper are too great. All paper cord is completely biodegradable or can be incinerated.
