    GIVING BACK //
    ON THE CUTTING TABLE


    A practice that Craft Boat has been working on to convert last bits of 100% cotton textile scraps from garment and fabric manufacturing industries into sheets of handmade paper.



    On the Cutting Table – while the textile are laid out for pattern cutting, we aim to use those bits of left over on the table and put it to a purpose at the stage one itself.

    The leftover cotton textile scraps are then collected and well packed in sacks to be sent to Craft Boat, Jaipur for processing it further into a product of use.

    While we start the process of converting cotton textile to handmade paper sheets. The first process involves - shredding the fabrics into very small bits so that they can be made into paper pulp. From Paper pulp we then make them into sheets of paper in various GSMs (thickness)

    Having finished the fabric to paper process, we then carefully select and check the sheets to be completely dried. So that we can GIVE BACK these sheets of paper to the fashion industry for their use of making paper bags, invoice papers, everyday writing paper..



    We immensely thank our team of paper makers in Sanganer, Jaipur to make this dream project into reality for us. We couldn’t have joined all the dots without their seamless support.
