Detail Description

Handmade Papyrus Papers with Pharaonic Drawings

<< FEATURES & CHARACTERISTICS >>
The papyrus paper is used as the symbol of lower Egypt as early as the pre-dynastic period (4000 B.C.). The raw material of papyrus comes from the plant Cyprus papyrus. This plant grew along the banks of the Nile and provided the Egyptians with a valuable raw material.
Not only was the ancient Egypt's greatest export but it revolutionized the way people kept valuable information. No substitution for papyrus paper could be found that was as durable and lightweight until the development of pulped paper by the Arabs. The way of making pulp paper was far easier to produce but not as durable. This not only led to a decline in papyrus paper making, but also to a decline in the papyrus plant cultivation.

The papyrus paper:
This is the first type of paper to be recorded in history.
To make the papyrus paper the outer green skin of the papyrus plant is removed and the internal part is sliced into strips. The slices are pounded to squeeze out the water and break up the fibre. The strips are put in water for three days until saturated and become transparent and flexible.
Strips of papyrus are cut to the required length and then placed on a piece of cotton. The edges of each strip are laid to overlap the previous one by 1 mm. Two layers are created, one horizontal and the other vertical to create a criss-cross pattern. The sheet is then place between two pieces of cardboard which are changed every eight hours until it completely dries. It takes about three days. The paper is now ready and can be used for painting.
