Our handmade paper is made from Mulberry bark. Caring for the environment, we use a non-destructive process carefully stripping the bark from the Mulberry tree - the bark grows back and the process is repeated.
The bark is soaked in fresh water about 24 hours. It is boiled in a large kettle 3-4 hours to soften the fibers. It then cools over night and is rinsed with clean water thouroughly until it is completely clean.
The fiber is then blended into smooth pulp. Dyes, flowers or leaves are added at this stage. They are stirred in a water tank filled with clean water until they float. The pulp is hand-sifted; mesh frames are used to strain the pulp. These screen-frames are placed in the sun allowing natural drying and air flow. Once dry, they become sheets of paper that are easily peeled off the screen.
This specialized technique has been passed down from generation to generation and has been our heritage for hundreds of years.
Paper Origin has taken this ancient technique and raised it to a higher standard.
