Cotton paper for wedding invitations, for instance, convey class. The handmade feel of the paper draws the recipient in, creating a true tactile experience they won’t soon forget.
The upside? Compared to conventional, professionally printed invites, khadi paper cards are exceptionally affordable.
Paper for the Eco-Friendly Consumer
Cotton paper for wedding invitations or other special events is also an environmentally friendly choice.
Most paper is made of either trees, bamboo, hemp or flax. These raw materials have to be grown, harvested and processed before they become a sheet of paper. This is a process that uses precious resources, but then also deforests lands.
Doesn’t sound very green does it?
Khadi paper is the right choice for people that care about the environment. This is because khadi paper is literally made of old shirts. Using old shirts means that we are not using up precious resources; we are reusing what’s already there.
Cotton paper being made from old shirts actually makes it stronger and more robust than most other papers. This is because the shirts are broken down and reformed into paper. The fibres or the old shirt are actually much longer and stronger than wood pulp. So not only is khadi paper a more environmentally friendly choice, it’s actually a better paper too!
This is why so many renaissance masters used rag paper for their works. Many governments around the world still use rag paper to print important documents and even currency. The strength of this paper cannot be overstated. Not only that, but khadi paper remains stable when used.
Much of the paper we use today has been processed with chemicals and even bleached to produce a brilliantly white sheet of paper. These chemicals can leach onto whatever has been printed on the paper. When khadi paper is used for art, the work can change and deteriorate in the presence of such chemicals.
For these reasons, Khadi paper makes the best choice if you are environmentally conscious. Not only are more sustainable raw materials used, but khadi paper is also processed without harmful chemicals.
