A popular product for its appealing texture and visual appeal. The Kraft exterior gives this product a very natural look and feel. It is extremely rigid but tears easily in all directions. This material has high barrier to moisture vapor and oxygen but low physical strength and the unprocessed paper exterior can crack and crinkle, and tear easily, and must be handled and stored with more care than a plastic product. The natural paper exterior is subject to natural variations in color, texture, and all visual elements between each lot.
