small chest of drawers „Phenix“, 22 x 10,5 x 22 cm, 2 large (10,5 x 10,5 x 10,5 cm) and 4 small (10,5 x 10,5 x 5 cm) "drawers", covered with handmade lokta paper, in: P73 Phenix, black
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.
