The first trade show focusing on sustainable packaging, Édition Spéciale by LUXE PACK in Paris (luxepack.com) is set to demonstrate how vital the issue of sustainability is for luxury goods. Mondi will be showing a selection of high-quality, sustainable packaging papers made from natural materials in the historic clothes market hall of the Carreau du Temple in Paris on 7 and 8 June 2023. In addition, 15 different presentations will give visitors the opportunity to learn about current trends and innovative product developments.
Classy packaging made from PERGRAPHICA® design papers
On stand C20, Mondi will showcase the possibilities PERGRAPHICA® premium design papers offer companies to enhance their brand identity using optics, haptics and colours and ensure a high recognition value. Premium products need to be presented properly, as it is the packaging that conveys the first impression of the content. Consumer expectation essentially means: the higher the quality of the packaging, the more exquisite the content.
“Our premium design paper brand PERGRAPHICA® opens up a wide variety of possibilities for packaging design,“ explains Bernhard Cantzler, Head of Marketing and Business Development at Mondi Uncoated Fine Paper. “PERGRAPHICA® stands for sustainability in every respect, offering a sensuous experience at the very first touch and a visual impact that can be striking or discreet.” The extensive portfolio of uncoated paper not only offers excellent optics and haptics, but also ensures consistently high print quality and outstanding finishing properties. PERGRAPHICA®-design papers are available in three shades of white with excellent colour reproduction, as well as a broad palette of 31 delicate, rich and dark colours in weights from 90 to 400 g/m².
“A sensuous experience at the very first touch and a visual impact that can be striking or discreet and on top sustainability in every respect.”

IQ BOARD premium quality for premium products
“Our uncoated virgin fibre premium paper IQ BOARD is equally interesting for packaging applications,” explains Bernhard Cantzler. “It highlights the persuasive power of exquisite content, in particular of luxury items and gift packaging, as well as cosmetics and hygiene products. IQ BOARD has been optimised for seamless processing in printing, filling and finishing. Perfect print results and its soft, natural haptics make it a fantastic paper for striking packaging designs.” IQ BOARD is available in high white and natural white in weights of 250 g/m² up to 400 g/m².
Visible grass fibres underline sustainable nature
In Paris, Mondi will be showing a particularly special packaging material with IQ GRASS + PACKAGING. It is made up of up to 30% grass fibre and 70% FSC™ and PEFC certified virgin fibre. The combination of raw materials from natural and sustainably cultivated areas lends IQ GRASS + PACKAGING its individual texture and fibre optics. No one sheet looks exactly like another, making each package unique. IQ GRASS + PACKAGING is available in weights from 80 to 350 g/m² and can be embellished with hot foil stamping or embossing to create a premium feel.
Food contact safety
At Luxe Pack, Mondi will be presenting a selection of papers that comply with different certification criteria for food contact. The three PERGRAPHICA® shades of white (High White, Classic and Natural) are suitable for food packaging, as are PERGRAPHICA® Infinite Black and papers of the IQ GRASS + PACKAGING and IQ BOARD Ivory series. They ensure products are kept in perfect condition in keeping with the brand identity and comply with all food safety regulations.
