James Cropper Papers
James Cropper creates some of the world's most distinctive and technically advanced paper products, using materials from cotton and wood to carbon fibre.
When asking ourselves: ‘what is an innovative, luxury paper?’ and ‘what do our customers need?’ there can be no simple answer, just as there can be no single paper product that provides a universal solution to every question. James Cropper has learned, through nearly two centuries of paper production, that the most challenging requests make the most interesting papers and we frequently invite our customers to push us beyond our limits.
Innovation sits at the heart of the modern James Cropper Papers, working to set the agenda for pulp fibre technologies in a digital age. International partners come to us to develop new products that identify and respond to their needs, whether it is a new paper that utilises their waste materials or an existing product that calls for a previously unobtainable colour. Our capabilities are only stretched by our imaginations.
James Cropper Papers developed by the waterside of the River Kent in England’s picturesque Lake District, using the vast natural resource of the area to produce some of the world’s finest papers. The same river runs by the mill today and we are reminded each day of our responsibilities to protect the world around us, not only to enjoy the benefits of doing business responsibly, but for the long-term health and prosperity of our employees, neighbours and customers.
