It takes fortitude and ingenuity to carve out a life in the woods. Richlite Company pioneered the paper-composite surface Industry beginning in 1943 beneath the majestic mountains and primeval forests of America's Pacific Northwest.
Like its surroundings, natural beauty, longevity and sustainability give Richlite's materials a mark of distinction in the architectural community. It's a versatile product with character that complements rugged to refined designs from urban centers to mountain hideaways.
Architects and designers consistently surprise us with the creative uses they find for Richlite. Kitchens, baths, commercial reception areas, stair treads, exterior wall cladding, cutting surfaces, guitar parts, outdoor furniture, signage, luxury ping pong tables, it never ends. And the product lasts a lifetime.
Is it really paper?
Yes it is. It starts out as pulp, is turned into paper and is transformed into a dense, durable, attractive material that can be tooled like wood and used for nearly any commercial or residential surface or design accents from sink basins to exterior wall cladding.
-Henry David Thoreau (Walden, 1854)
