Re-edition of “Souvenirs du Futur" isothermal chocolate paper fabric..... Relance du textile isotherme « Papier chocolat ».

Titrage-1421163593

 

 

 

 

The chocolate paper concept  first came into life as an aluminum foil chocolate wrapping paper

 

 

From chocolate paper to isothermal fabric

 

Back to 1976,  "Souvenirs du Futurs" inventor Philippe  – an ultimate chocolate lover himself  -  had the idea to convert this chocolate wrapping material into an isothermal fabric.

 

Starting from scatch, Philippe laboriously went through various processes to finally eloborate a unique fabric which could be used for many applications on an industrial level.

 

After a huge success during the 80's, the product went to a sleeping mode - which is quite usual for any new inventions as trends only last for so long and are quite unpredictable.

 

Today, Philippe sensed that it was past time to revive the concept and give it a bright new future. And so the "Papier chocolat" project is in the air again.
