Fedrigoni Paper Replaces Leather For Leica

Interesting. While this is a high-end, limited edition product, I wonder what other applications we might see a paper like this used for? Shoes? Wallets? 

We won’t pass judgement on the looks of the camera — inevitably some will find it gorgeous while others will think otherwise — but Leica is certainly proud of their creation. They used specially treated paper called ‘Constellation Jade’ that they claim is better than even the best leathers. It’s acetone resistant, abrasion resistant and can withstand temperatures between -40 and 158°F.
