Paper comes from trees, right? Often, but in the town of Sanganer, near Jaipur, a small community of artisans is keeping alive the region’s age-old tradition of making this familiar product from recycled cotton pulp. Once considered a luxury for the royal family alone, today their craft is gaining popularity as an eco-friendly alternative.
Nowadays, the paper makers, traditionally called Kaagzi, work for Craft Boat, a company specializing in creating community around the production of artfully handmade paper gifts.
For Craft Boat artisans, the making of their delicate products is more than just a way of making ends meet, is more, even, than keeping a cultural tradition alive. It is a way of being alive, of entering the moment and doing so in the company of others.
