Fashion forecaster guides new colors for Curious Collection’s Translucents and Metallics
100% PCW content available for Metallics’ four, most-popular sheets
Green Power now a standard feature for Metallics & Translucents

New Curious Collection Metallics and Translucents colors were developed in consultation with Li Edelkoort of Studio Edelkoort in New York and Paris. Eleven new, fashion-forward colors were added to Curious Metallics and seven colors were added to Curious Translucents. Beyond these expanded color choices, four of the most-popular Metallics sheets now are available in 100 percent post-consumer recovered fiber (PCW) content. Also newly announced is Green Power as a standard feature for the Metallics and Translucents lines (renewable energy in the form of wind, hydro, and biogas).

Curious Metallics‘ new, fashion-inspired colors include:
