- The paper production cycle starts with cotton strips known as chindy. The chindy is grounded into small fibers.
- The fibers are then added to a binding solution in preparation for the paper making.
- Next, the cotton is added to water. The colour is mixed in before it is sifted with a frame. The size of this frame will determine the size of the paper.
- After it is taken out of the frame, the paper is layered and separated with muslin cloth. It is still wet at this stage.
- The paper is then placed into a press, and all the excess water is squeezed out to prepare the paper for drying.
- Once the paper is taken from the press, the muslin cloth is removed and each sheet is stacked on top of the other.
- The sheets are hung to dry. Once taken down, they are trimmed and packed as a block.
- Any remaining paper is collected and recycled into the next paper production cycle.
Our paper and products are also special because they do not harm nature in any way!!!
