What is Khadi Paper?
Khadi paper is a very unique form of paper. Khadi paper is only made in one part of the world as well.

All papers are made from some kind of pulp. Trees, bamboo, hemp, or flax make up the majority of office papers used around the world. These raw materials are pulverized and washed until they are a pulp. They are then reformed into large sheets, dried, and cut down to whatever size is needed.
Khadi paper differentiates itself because it comes from a different raw material. Khadi paper comes from old shirts. This is why people also call it rag paper. Khadi is literally made from shirts that have become too old to wear.
These old clothes become repurposed as paper. People see Khadi paper as a very environmentally friendly paper because it come from a material that would otherwise be thrown away. It turns out that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure! Clothes that would be in a landfill see new life as a beautiful and unique piece of khadi paper.

Using Khadi paper for your projects helps it to stand out, but it’s important to understand where that special quality of the paper comes from.
The old shirts used for khadi paper are washed and turned into a pulp. Once the paper washed, artisan papermakers are able to apply dyes to create beautiful paper.
