Wood Pulp – Everything About It

The renewable and eco-friendly choice

Wood Pulp

Wood pulp, a remarkably versatile material derived from trees, is a renewable and eco-friendly choice for crafting essential baking tools like bannetons.

Our journey began in 1847, and with a commitment to sustainability, we’ve embraced the exceptional qualities of wood pulp for our handcrafted bannetons. 

Bread baskets (proofing baskets) have been essential tools for bakers for almost two centuries. Our company’s story began over 150 years ago, initially crafting molds from straw and later transitioning to rattan. However, recognizing the ecological concerns associated with rattan, we’ve proudly used wood pulp since 1920.

Our raw material is a pure, natural product derived from fresh spruce wood. It’s made without chemical additives, relying solely on physical processes. Fresh tree trunks from sustainable forests are pressed onto rotating stone rollers with water, breaking down the wood structure.

This creates a fibrous material containing cellulose molecules and natural wood components like lignin, which may cause a slight yellow-brown discoloration – a testament to the unaltered state of the wood pulp.

What is Wood Pulp?

Wood pulp is created by transforming trees into a soft, fibrous material. Different methods, such as mechanical and chemical pulping, exist.

We focus on wood pulp sourced from sustainably managed forests, ensuring the renewability of this valuable resource.

We meticulously source our wood pulp from forests dedicated to sustainable practices. At every stage of production, we strive to minimize our environmental footprint.
