The paper is lifted by hand using
a chhapri or
grass mat. The raw material used is waste cotton fibre.
The Bombay Paperie seeks to create
an awareness of the fast disappearing craft of paper-making by hand. In India, today,
paper made using cotton fibre, on a mechanical mould is often sold as "hand-made".
This is rapidly putting master craftsmen out of work. All our products are made
of paper which has been lifted by hand.
