Produced in the North of Thailand, this paper is made from the bark of the mulberry tree. Trees are specially cultivated for their bark, but also for their leaves used to feed silkworms in the silk industry.
The tree sheds its bark every year. The mulberry tree bark is boiled and the fibre is beaten to a pulp. This pulp is then spread by hand on to large screens and left to dry in the sun. The strong yet pliable mulberry paper is ideally suited for many domestic and business-related purposes. The Olino Paperworks collection features attractive mulberry paper which can be written on, or mulberrypaper, decorated with flowers or other fibres.
The mulberrypulp can also be used for machinemade paper in very thin qualities such as 25 gsm.
