I Like Paper

Tyvek® Timepieces

The water-resistant watches from I Like Paper are all handmade in Berlin, Germany, and come from the creative mind of Maker and graphic designer Marc Aurel Hartung. He wanted to try something different when it came to watches because he felt like traditional timepieces had become dated, with many of us relying on our phones to check the time. So Marc turned to an unexpected—but eco-friendly—material: Tyvek® paper.

Tyvek® Timepieces

The water-resistant watches from I Like Paper are all handmade in Berlin, Germany, and come from the creative mind of Maker and graphic designer Marc Aurel Hartung. He wanted to try something different when it came to watches because he felt like traditional timepieces had become dated, with many of us relying on our phones to check the time. So Marc turned to an unexpected—but eco-friendly—material: Tyvek® paper.

Tyvek is tough for paper. Even though it’s lightweight and flexible, it’s tear-proof and water-resistant. Marc chose Tyvek because of its long-lasting durability and because it’s recyclable, too. Artist- and illustrator-designed prints pack the watches for grown-ups and kids with colorful personality. The result of I Like Paper’s by-hand approach is an anything-but-ordinary watch made to stand out for how it’s made and how fun it is.
