Turning trash into treasure: Paper waste gets a new life
5” x 7” white handmade recycled papers wth envelopes. Each sheet is individually hand-pulled, leaving it with beautiful deckle edges. These papers are cardstock weight, approximately 200-250 gsm. We make the pulp from recycled office waste with added 20-30% cotton to improve the texture and edges. The paper has a lovely texture and tiny black speckles from the ink in the papers that were recycled. We also add internal sizing to the pulp to decrease the porousness of the finished paper.
The envelopes are made from a single hand-pulled, shaped sheet of paper. The papers have then been hand-folded into charming deckle-edged envelopes with a strip of envelope glue on the inside of the flap for sealing.
