What is Khadi Paper?
Khadi paper has a bold history in its own sense. It made its beginnings in Asia, predominantly in India. What started as an alternative to traditional wood pulp based paper, khadi derives from cotton rags.
Khadi began as a style of fabric. Khadi cloth became manipulated for uses in garment making, specifically for kurtas, or long tunic style shirts. It was a staple cloth manufactured as a response to boycotting the use of foreign fabrics within Indian made clothing.
Gandhi himself assisted weavers in the manufacture of khadi cloth. He supported the boycott of foreign fabrics, and wanted to end the economic struggle associated with foreign goods over Indian made goods.
Furthermore, the benefits of khadi cloth were discovered as it became continuously utilized for goods other than garments. Eventually, paper became manufactured as khadi paper.
Its strong, durable properties make for many versatile uses. As khadi is made from cotton rag fibers, it also has superior soak-ability. Those who enjoy painting watercolors make good use from khadi paper.
Therefore, the handcrafted gem is great for several projects. Since it’s built tough, it outlasts regular paper. Khadi works in great ways whether you’re an artist or a hobbyist.
Overall, khadi paper’s fantastic benefits allow for enjoyable and fulfilling uses.
Khadi Paper Hearts Processing
Khadi paper is made by artisans who’ve perfected their craft. Typically made in India, you’ll find little to no chemicals utilized in its processing. This paper, handcrafted with care, has an interesting way of becoming the khadi paper that’s used by many.
Most noteworthy, this paper starts as a simple recycled cotton rag. Most khadi paper’s processing centers around recycled cotton rags in the form of old garments. The cotton rag’s pulp becomes extracted to use in forming khadi sheets.
The cotton pulp extracts using a Hollander beater. This method chops and takes the pulp from the cotton rags. Once the pulp is ready, the sheets become formed.
Forming khadi sheets happens individually. They’re not made like traditional wood pulp paper where they’re fed and formed on a roll, but rather sheet by sheet. Before they’re formed, they also regulate and balance the paper’s pH levels.
Placing the pulp in a mold forms the sheets individually. If the mold remains slightly overpoured, when it’s lifted, the sheet will have what’s known as a deckled edge. This leaves the sheet with a slightly ragged, natural edge.
In addition, the sheets become placed between woolen felt. From there, they’re left to dry. Once dried, they’re ready for use.
In the case of khadi paper hearts, the mold shape helps form the heart. From there, packs like our offering become created and enjoyed by customers like you!
