What Is Handmade Paper !
Paper made by hand using a mould (a frame covered with a flat, rigid screen or flexible screen). In both cases the mould is covered by a flat frame called a deckle, to contain the run-off of wet pulp, dipped into a vat of wet pulp, shaken to distribute the fibers evenly and drained of its excess water. The wet mat of fibers remaining in the newly formed sheet is then dried against blankets & may be hot pressed, cold pressed, or air dried.
Paper Making Process
ton of Indian handmade paper, produced from cotton rag waste, saves
about 270 Eucalyptus or at least 400 bamboo trees that would be required
to make the same quantity of machine made paper. Unlike easily available
machine made papers, Indian Handmade papers are made from ‘khadda’ i.e.
unbleached hand spun rags left over from the garment industry. Except
for the electric motors used for pulping, calendaring and peripheral
activities, all production is manual. No harsh chemicals or dyes are
used. Decorative effects are produced by inclusions such as petals,
grass clippings and waste threads. Paper is dried under the sun. The
water let out from the industries is benign. The input is cotton cut
waste from garment industries. And the output goes to every advanced
economy in the world.
