Khadi paper is one of the most upscale papers you can use. It works great as invitations, and artists even use it for their work.
Read below to learn more about khadi paper and how Canvas ETC can help you express yourself.
Khadi paper is a very unique kind of paper.
Regular paper that you might throw through your home or office printer is usually made from either wood, bamboo, hemp or flax. These raw materials are harvested, pulverized, then washed. The lignin in the pulp is like a glue that holds the plant together. It is washed away, and paper makers are left with the cellulose from the plant that can be reshaped.
Oftentimes, papermakers will add stabilizing chemicals or dyes to make the paper to specific specifications. This makes very uniform paper that is not unique in any way. Khadi is the opposite.
Khadi paper is actually made of old shirts. This is why it is sometimes called “rag” paper. These old shirts are recycled to produce something new.
Papermakers pulverize and wash the old shirts. The pulp is then formed into large sheets of paper that are pressed and dried. The old shirts used are already stable, so no chemicals have to be used in producing the paper.
Because khadi is made of long fiber cloth, it is also exceptionally strong. Many countries use rag paper for their currency or important documents because the paper is pH neutral and tough.
Many artists have started using khadi paper as well for the same reasons. They don’t have to worry about their paintings or drawings being ruined by an acidic paper.
