Rooted in the Swedish forests
Lessebo Paper is located in a densely forested area right between large shallow lakes in the inland region of Småland, Sweden. We have produced paper generation over generation, developing one of the most climate friendly paper in the world and it’s fully biodegradable and recyclable. All production site energy is sole from biomass fuel. Our renewable excess energy supply district heating to local homes.
Respect the surroundings today is to care about the generations of tomorrow. A 300 year old philosophy, more relevant than ever.
Welcome to the inspiring and diverse world of climate friendly paper. We have for generations developed our paper qualities and we frequently push the art of making paper beyond the limits.
Lessebo Paper Studio
Welcome to explore the vivid world of paper. Creations that seem impossible, we make possible together with genius artistic minds around the world – those who dare to look over the horizon when it comes to the future of paper.
Lessebo Paper Studio is a platform where we together change the perception of what is possible to create out of paper. We have collected some of the most innovative and creative designers, sharing a mutual passion for our favourite material – paper.
Lessebo Paper, with a heritage dating back to 1693, prioritises responsible resource management in our paper production. We utilise Swedish wood from sustainably managed forests, minimise our water usage with efficient treatment, and use 100% green energy. Our chemical choices meet strict environmental standards, with a commitment to a chlorine-free process, promoting a sustainable approach to paper production.
