Designed in Sydney, Karst Stone Paper aims to disrupt the paper industry. The need for paper isn’t going away any time soon, but the need for a sustainable paper option is nearing a tipping point. Karst Stone Paper is a superior alternative to traditional pulp paper that uses no trees, water, wastes, acids, or bleaches to produce, delivering the whitest and smoothest paper available.

Karst’s founders, Jon Tse and Kevin Garcia, first came across the idea of stone paperback in 2016, on a vacation to Taiwan. A Taiwanese factory had originally set out to create paper made out of stone for food packaging because the material had all the functionality of regular wood pulp paper, but it also happened to be waterproof. It dawned on Tse and Garcia that stone paper could serve as an alternative to traditional wood pulp paper.

Recyclable & tree-free

Stone paper is infinitely recyclable, made from repurposed Calcium carbonate construction waste. The process eliminates the use of water in production.

Friction-free writing

No grain direction, no bleed through, Stone paper is smoother than anything you’ve ever written on. Completely friction-free, pens & pencils glide across the page.

Waterproof & tear-resistant

Calcium carbonate is the base of superhydrophobic coatings. Stone paper is completely waterproof, and tear-resistant with its unique chemical structure.

60% lower carbon footprint

Stone paper has a 60% smaller carbon footprint than traditional wood-pulp paper. A sheet of traditional A5 paper uses about 2.5 gallons of water.
