These papers are made from the bark of the mulberry bush.
The branches of the bush are being harvested and the bark is peeled of these branches. Within the coming 3-5 years the bush will regrow the branches. The bark is then beaten and cooked until it becomes smooth. This pulp will then be “dissolved“ in a large water tank into which the screen for the sheet is placed – by moving the screen in the water tank the pulp is spread evenly throughout the screen. The screen is slowly removed from the water – the sheet is ready – it will be dried by having the screen exposed to sun light – either in vertical shape – or traditionally in an angle.
