Paper Rope

Posted on Oct 22, 2010 in Other Crafts & Crafty People | 4 comments

Paper rope has been around for centuries and in some culture plays an important role in daily activities. Koreans has perfected paper making from mulberry tree and a bride is presented with paper jar made by twisting paper into a rope and is made strong and water proofed by combining a mixture of unripened persimmon juice, rice glue and perilla oil. Ann, of All Things Paper  talks about this on her blog. My sister will be participating in upcoming CHA Winter Show and one of the products that will be showcased is the paper rope. She sent me a few samples which will be going in my Etsy Shop.

The thought of just recycling paper and cut less trees is appealing, I just love the idea of recycling paper into handmade paper. Hmmm…….so many craft ideas, so little time 🙂
