What is recycled cotton rag paper?

Handmade cotton rag paper recuperated from local textile industry is a unique and eco-friendly type of paper made from locally recuperated recycled cotton rag offcuts from local textile production.

The process involves collecting the cotton waste, before it is turned into pulp. Once the pulp is ready, it is placed in a large vat of water and stirred by hand, allowing the fibers to mesh together to form a sheet of paper. The sheet is then lifted out of the water and dried on a flat surface using a pressing machine or left to air dry naturally.
