Fibre

The fibre for some 96% of world paper production is obtained from trees and recycled paper. Only 4% of the total comes from cultivated plants and agricultural waste, but these are the fibres which have the most interesting characteristics for handmade paper to be used in artistic creations.
Paper pulp is obtained from the mechanical and chemical treatment of plants and wood. Sheets of paper pulp do not need to be heated. They are ready for grinding and refining.
Paper pulp can be bleached or unbleached: ECF (elemental chlorine free), or TCF (totally chlorine free).
The museum sells sheets of paper pulp in cotton, flax, hemp, abaca, sisal, pine and eucalyptus.
