About Us

Our Story

With us, what you see is what you get.

Nova Tissue is an independent UK manufacturer based in the North West of England with more than 30 years’ experience in paper converting (which is a fancy name for making toilet roll and kitchen roll!)

We specialise in affordable, quality, eco-friendly products, offering ultimate convenience and reliability to domestic and commercial customers. Our experience and understanding of the market allows us to deliver best quality and value and we take great care throughout our manufacturing process to ensure the highest standards, using pure virgin fibre in our toilet tissue products for supreme softness and specially bonding our kitchen towel products for extra thickness and absorbency.

We take sustainability and our environmental impact seriously: Our raw materials are all sustainably and locally sourced and our ‘Soft on Nature’ range leads in the way in plastic-free packaging.

You might have seen us in the national news and on daytime TV back in 2020 when we stepped in to help calm down the toilet roll stockpiling hysteria at the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic – see more here.
