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 recycled cotton rags from 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.
This type of paper is highly valued for its unique texture, strength, and durability. It has a distinct look and feel that is perfect for a variety of uses. It is also considered to be more environmentally friendly than traditional paper, as it uses recycled materials and has a lower environmental impact.
