Meet the Artisans

Matr Boomie

Our 100% recycled cotton paper is made by artisans in Rajasthan, India, following a generations-old process. First, discarded cotton scraps are collected from the textile industry. Cotton is broken down into fibers using a traditional wheel press and then soaked overnight. Next, the pulp is strained, pressed into pages and hung to dry. After ironing, crisp pear goes either into journals or into the hands of artisans for screen-printing, embroidery or patchwork. The entire process is tree-free, non-toxic, and conserves and filters water for reuse in irrigation.

 

Our partner artisans belong to a minority group called Kagzis, who are part of a long tradition of handmade paper-making. Since the process is done by hand, it provides work opportunity for many people in this community. Benefits for the artisans include training, microfinance, education, and health assistance.
