What is Saa Paper?
Saa paper, also known as Mulberry Paper, is a strong, soft, and naturally-textured traditionally handmade paper that is sourced from the bark of the mulberry tree, scientifically named as Broussonetia Papyrifera Vent, which is, essentially, considered as a weed that readily and usually grows across the well-irrigated soils of Thailand and other Southeast Asian countries.1,2
They are manufactured following a series of simple paper-making procedures, such as the harvesting of the bark, soaking the latter in cold water for about a day to soften and become pliable, bleaching the mulberry fibers so they achieve a uniform color, sorting the fibers for quality, and drying which subsequently turns them into paper, but which must be carefully followed, are time-consuming, and, sometimes, challenged by the vagaries of the weather.
Saa paper sheets are colored with vegetable dye and come in varying thickness, sizes, and designs. They can be used for a wide array of paper crafts, such as the making of hand fans, gift boxes, greeting cards, bags, albums, lampshades, paper parasols, and many others, and can be directly printed, painted, or drawn upon.
