Handmade Paper India
India is a country rich in biodiversity. It is the 2nd largest hub for manufacturing clothes. It is the 2nd largest populated country.
What do these have in common?
You ask with interest, how does this fit in? We connect the dots for you. India uses over 35 million tonnes of raw cotton every year for manufacturing clothes. During the manufacturing process, there is about 3 to 5% wastage of the cotton fabric that we call `chindi`. These are secondary waste cut pieces that end up in the landfill, dumps or taken back to make yarn.
We at bluecat paper, Bangalore, India have used for this in our hand paper making unit. At Bluecat paper we create handmade paper from secondary waste such as chindi, banana, coffee husk, coconut husk, and lemongrass.
We collect chindi from our nearby manufacturing units, color sorts them and get them ready for the beating process. We call in our local ( both male and female) population, offer them training programs in order to elevate them from unskilled to semi-skilled status by training them on the sheet formation process.
This training program lasts for nearly 5 months! During observation when we `lift `a fine and even sheet of paper we realise that our efforts have been successful.Therefore we have now equipped our employed staff to now create a beautiful strong sheet of paper. This is the empowerment of a special kind. Now our employed force has learned how to make a sustainable product with their hands.
