Bolton Pencil Cup
The rich tones and attractive hardware of our Bolton series belies the material’s industrial origin. This incredibly durable material was originally used to make material handling carts at the dawn of the assembly line. Nearly as tough as aluminum or plywood, Bolton is actually paper subjected to a vulcanization process. Vulcanization soaks paper in a chemical bath that cross links the plant-fiber molecules in the paper. The cross-linked molecules created a thickened, gelatinized paper that is then pressed presses and dried into a hard board. No resins are used in production. The material is extremely tough and durable but essentially biodegradable. The Bolton family of vulcanized paper makes durable desk accessories and storage boxes that will stand up to the toughest applications. From factory floor to digital age office, the Bolton family of products is made for work.
