In 2017, our passion for paper took us to Chiang Mai, Thailand to learn firsthand how mulberry paper gets made. Though papermaking has greatly become automated, mulberry papermakers still use tools and techniques very similar to those used hundreds of years ago to create paper entirely by hand. The process includes the gathering of plant fibers, the preparation of the paper pulp, and lastly, the forming of the paper sheets, one sheet at a time. The result? Chemical-free, pest-resistant paper that can last for centuries. We created this tutorial introducing recycled-papermaking to paper lovers, bookbinders, artists and DIYers.
Now you can turn all your paper scraps into recycled paper, and use the sheets you created for bookbinding, making invitations, doing origami, and so much more.
