Double A Quality — Secret lies in the Trees
Double A’s ultimate goal is to be internationally recognised as the leading provider of premium quality copy paper. The high quality and superior performance of Double A paper are results of the high fiber content — 30 million fibers per gram — from Double A’s paper trees, which are planted by more than 1.5 million farmers throughout Thailand.
The unique fiber characteristics that can only be sourced from the Double A paper tree give each sheet of paper the consistently high density required for stability and smoothness — the secret of perfect jam-free
