Recycled and petroleum-free resin help create hard, durable board.

Kirei and Paperstone

Kirei is a composite board made primarily from reclaimed stalks of the sorghum plant (harvest mostly in China). The board has a striking color and pattern and a wide range of uses, including furniture, cabinetry, and flooring.

Adjacent to Kirei was PaperStone, a truly cool product that’s best for countertops or decorative wallboard. PaperStone uses post-consumer recycled paper and petroleum-free resin (sometimes made from cashew nut shell liquid), to create a hard, durable board with a subtle matte texture. The company offers an “original” product that’s 50% recycled paper, as well as a “certified” product that uses 100% recycled paper and meets about every possible green industry standard.
