The Bombay Paperie is keeping craft of paper making by hand alive by actually following traditions and not using mechanical mould. Waste cotton fibre is used as raw material and paper is lifted by hand using a chhapri or grass mat. See the master craftsmen at work here. Hand made paper has been made in India for at least 500 years. Who introduced the technique in India and its history – to know more read here.
