This paper is 100% recycled and handmade from cow dung and cotton rags. Cow dung is typically full of short to medium grained fibrous materials from the cows diet which when processed makes excellent paper. Naturally dried cow dung from cow shelters (also called “gaushalas”) is brought back to the village unit to make beautiful handmade paper.
