How is the elephant dung paper made?
Using natural resources - First the dung is sun dried and then sterilized by boiling it at 120 degrees in a sealed high-pressure boiler.
The pulp is then mixed to break up the fibers. Recycled office waste is then added for consistency, before being spread on to submerged screens to create sheets of paper. No bleaches or acids are used in the production of the paper with salt dyes used to create the beautiful colours.
The whole process is sustainable. Bore water that is used in production is then put through a filtration system so that can be reused.
Nothing is wasted. Even the small pieces of pulp paper that drop to the bottom of the tank are used to create the cut-outs which decorate our finished products.
This process takes 13 days to complete, leaving a soft, naturally textured paper. And in case you are wondering.No, it does not smell!
