box with grid pattern and blossoms, Ø 3,5 cm, H 10 cm, slip lid, covered with handmade lokta paper, natural with: 25 pink, magenta/ light blue, 25A pink/ magenta/ rose
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.
