Visit to a Papermaking Factory

We're going to go to this small town close to Oaxaca where a charming creek flows through a small factory devoted to the art of making paper by hand in small batches.  Everything is made from natural materials.

 Pulling the pulp up through a screen.

 The paper goes between big fat pieces of felt.

 Then it goes into a big press.

This is such a beautiful place.  We'll learn all about papermaking from beginning to end.  Then we can select from the small but excellent selection of paper made at the factory.  We'll make our own books from Mexican paper.   We'll see paper kites and paper jewelry too
