Sartorial materials and finishing, Italian design and artisanal production: this is Folio, the new Napkin Forever by Pininfarina line.
Forever Pininfarina Folio is the new line of business accessories created by NAPKIN and Pininfarina after several futuristic projects in the sector of writing tools.
The collaboration between NAPKIN and Pininfarina, born in 2014, gave life to an innovative line of stylus characterized by the tip in Ethergraf: among them, Forever Pininfarina Cambiano, appreciated by the market and by the critics, and Forever Pininfarina AERO, that in 2017 won the prestigious Red Dot Design Award in the category Product Design (Office supplies and stationery).
The star of the new collection is the Folio bag, able to adapt to every situation, from a business meeting to a bike ride to a cocktail with friends. The keyword is versatility: Folio bag is in fact a bag, backpack, folder and cross body bag, all together in one product.
A full range of accessories as wallet, credit cards holder, business cards holder and key ring complete the line; the bag and the wallet are also provided with anti-RFID technology, to protect the contactless credit cards from frauds.
At the beginning of 2018, Pininfarina x Napkin Folio will be available on the international market, after a presentation scheduled at Paperworld in Frankfurt (January 27 – 30, 2018), The International trade fair for stationery at Messe Frankfurt.
The choice of materials further confirms the fact that Folio is not a traditional line: the bag and the accessories are in fact realized with refined Italian nappa leather and an innovative material (Ligneah), a patented fabric in wood that, thanks to a precise and eco-friendly manufacturing, becomes manageable and softas the leather and, at the same time, elegant and irreproducible as the wood, preserving veining, tones and structure.
All the products of the Folio line are realized in two versions, one with walnut wood fabric and the other “total black” with wengé wood fabric.
