✡ History of Indian Hand Made Papers
Indian handmade paper is unique and ECO-FRIENDLY. Whereas the handmade paper produced in other parts of the world uses mainly fresh cotton lintel, Indian handmade paper is produced from cotton rag waste from the cotton garment/ undergarment industry. More importantly, no toxic chemicals are used in the handmade paper making process. In producing writing paper a small quantity of rosin soap and or alum are added to the pulp to make the writing paper blot free. The pulp is flushed with water to ensure that no traces of chemicals are left. During the pulp making colors and other waste materials like straw, grass, hemp, silk waste, flower petals etc., are added to lend a unique and beautiful artistic texture to the handmade paper. One ton of traditional Indian handmade paper, produced from cotton rag waste, saves an estimated 277 Eucalyptus or 462 bamboo trees that would be required to make the same quantity of conventional mill made paper. Surprising, but it is true. This is the short history of environment friendly Indian handmade paper. So, next time you buy or use paper or stationery products think of Indian handmade paper. By using this paper or its products you will contribute to a healthier tomorrow.
