Handmade Gampi and Straw Paper
These are sheets of Gampi and straw. After cooking and beating the gampi, I added the processed straw fibers. The more pronounced fibers are the straw. The paper is crisp and strong. The deckled edges of these sheets give the paper its distinctive handmade quality. Because the mould and deckle is dipped into the vat of pulp, some fibers seep slightly beyond the deckle.
