CRAFT BOAT
Located in: India
Social enterprise Craft Boat works with artisans who recycle discarded cotton textiles from the garment industry to create innovative products. The technique of handmade papermaking has been passed down through generations in India. The quality and the texture of the materials set them apart and make them incredibly special. The cotton is sent to papermaking workshops in Sanganer, a town in Jaipur, and is then converted into 100 percent cotton paper. The textile scraps are assorted and recycled into a paper pulp, which is then transformed into sheets of cotton paper to develop sustainable products. To create our collection of gift accessories including journals, boxes, tags, and stationery sets, artisans carefully create paper and preserve stitching and natural dyeing techniques, based on the desired color. It takes approximately one to three hours to make the piece.
