RECYCLED COTTON PAPERS
Our Recycled Cotton Papers are handmade using 100% Cotton waste, gathered from the textile trade & approved by The Global Recycled Standard.
The waste cotton is chopped, pulped, washed and then using water based dyes, we match to any Pantone shade to create our Vivid base paper colour. The pulp is hand pressed onto mesh frames, where paper thickness (gsm) is skilfully determined by touch. Excess water is pressed out of the paper and once made each sheet is hung in warm sunshine to dry!
It takes two skilled workers a whole day to hand made 500 sheets of recycled cotton paper! This centuries old skill is taught and passed down from one generation to another. It is truly wonderful to see this paper being made, knowing that it is completely tree free and made using waste cotton, that would have otherwise been discarded.
Our cotton paper is strong and versatile – perfect for wrapping, crafting and reusing!
