Handmade paper is available from around the globe. Mulberry from China, lokta from Nepal, rice from Japan, papyrus from Egypt to name a few sources. The raw material is ground to a pulp by hand, water and some type of starch is added and the mixture is poured onto a screen to dry. Colors from onions, lavender, bark, hickory nuts, can be added to the pulp, as well as small flowers, flecks of minerals, or fruit rinds to add visual interest. When dried it can be embellished with ribbons, stamped designs or handdrawn flourishes.

Here are some closeup pictures to help you recognize different types. You can download these to make nice faux paper textures for gift tags, stationary borders and labels.
