Our papers are made from the bark of a special mulberry bush. The branches of the bush are being harvested and the bark is peeled off. Within the coming 3-5 years the bush will regrow. The bark is then beaten and cooked until it becomes smooth. This pulp will be “dissolved“ in a large water tank into which the screen is placed. The screen is slowly removed from the water – the sheet is ready – it will be dried by having the screen exposed to sun light.
