1. Products

  • What are Papernomads made of?
    Our products are made of organic materials. Their skin is our patented paper composite which consists of several alyers of paper and bio-polymers. The other ingredients are cotton, sheep wool produced by happy Australian sheep and a pull-strap made from hemp fibers.

  • Why do you use paper to manufacture laptop sleeves?
    Have a look around and ask yourself: why are most sleeves or covers for mobile elctronic devices made from plastic? You may find that plastic lasts for a long time - in most cases it lasts a lot longer than desired and therefore becomes a problem to dispose of. If most electronic devices are designed to last just a couple of years, why do you need a sleeve that lasts for eternity? Paper is a soothingly analogue material - the perfect counterbalance to the metal and plastic world that surrounds us. Paper ages in grace, it becomes increasingly valuable as it collects marks and traces and by doing that it becomes a canvas for your own memories: it begins to tell your story. That's why we use paper.

  • How durable are Papernomads?
    We and some of our friends have been testing our products over a period of 14 months and we are convinced that your Papernomad will outlive your iPad, laptop or mobile phone. Compare it with Tupperware: those plastic bowls are almost indestructible - your wine glasses are not. But would you drink a good red out of a plastic cup?

  • What happens if my Papernomad gets wet?
    Nothing. Let it dry and it will look like nothing ever happened. You shouldnt put your Papernomad into the washing machine or use it in the bath tub. But if you spill your coffe on it or carry it on a rainy day, it will cope and dry.

  • Why don't you use recycled paper?
    Recycled paper contains harsh chemicals and residues from the printing process which could render our products 'toxic". 

  • Some Papernomads contain magnets - can they affect my hard drive?

3. Payments

  • My credit card doesn't work...
    If you are paying by credit card, the shipping address must match the billing address of your credit card. If you want your purchase to be sent to a different address, please use your Paypal account or send us an email to shop@papernomad.com and we find a solution. We will continue to improve the payment thing, but for the moment we have to deal with Paypal.
