The paper making process with Ghanaian pulp mulberry involves harvesting the raw material, scraping off the outer bark and discarding the soft wood to leave the inner bark; cooking the inner bark to soften it, rinsing the cooked fiber with clean water, beating the fiber, forming sheets at the vat, pressing these sheets to remove excess water, and drying. To make paper from textile waste we gather the cloth scraps, sort them into colors, cut them and beat them in our Hollander beater to make pulp. All the color in our paper comes from either the natural plant colors or the dyed textile scraps.
