These beautiful gift bags are made by oil marbling on cotton recycled handmade paper. Oil Marbling is the beautiful art of creating colourful flowy patterns on paper by floating oil and water colours on the surface of water held in a tank. The patterns are controlled by careful monitoring and deliberate direction of the flowing colours & oil. Once the pattern is set on the water surface, a paper is gradually put on top and the floating pattern sticks to the paper transferring the unique pattern. This marbled paper is used for gift wraps, gift bags, Journals, Notecards and many more products. Purchase of this bag promotes sustainable livelihood for paper making, oil marbling and paper bag making artisan communities. Thank you for helping us in this noble cause.
Handmade with Love by artisans in India!
Our 100% recycled cotton paper is made by artisans in Rajasthan, India, following a generations-old process. First, discarded cotton scraps are collected from the textile industry. Cotton is broken down into fibers using a traditional wheel press and then soaked overnight. Next, the pulp is strained, pressed into pages and hung to dry. After ironing, crisp pear goes either into journals or into the hands of artisans for screen-printing, embroidery or patchwork. The entire process is tree-free, non-toxic, and conserves and filters water for reuse in irrigation.
