Paper production between tradition and innovation: Grass paper
Take: Fibres, water, glue – then press and dry!
The basic recipe for papermaking has remained virtually unchanged for centuries. Much has been written about the production processes, yet for many the relatively new grass paper is a term that still leaves some questions unanswered.
Paper making is a very old craft that has undergone changes in raw material composition over time. Starting over 2,000 years ago with plant fibres such as bamboo, then via rags (old rags) and also straw, fresh fibres and recycled fibres were for a long time the two predominant raw materials for paper production. Thanks to the invention of machine production, the once laborious manual creation of individual sheets became a faster and more cost-effective continuous paper web.
