Handmade in a paper-making cooperative whose mission is to teach paper-making techniques to locals and to provide work: Paper is made without contaminants using fibers and other natural ingredients that are renewable and available locally, like pochote, coyuchi, hemp, silk, linen, and mica. Artisans work every step of the process from start to finish: separating and cleaning fibers; making pulp; molding pulp on screens; extracting water by mechanical press; peeling sheets from drying trays; ironing individual tissues of paper; cutting out designs by hand; and stringing papeles into a banner.
