True papyrus strips for the manufacturing of papyrus sheets

Papyrus manufacturing – You can do it yourself with real Papyrus strips from the land of the Pharaohs

All Papyrus strips come from the land of the Pharaohs of Egypt. Adding of the Papyrus sheet is easy and explained in a manual with pictures, so that you can make yourself this fascinating archaeological experience. It also helps pupils from the age of six, but also students to learn about the manufacturing of papyrus. You simply need to put the Papyrus strips in water. Then strip by strip your papyrus sheet is growing by adding one strip to the next. Until the sheet is ready, you work on a cotton cloth. Finally, you need to try your papyrus sheet, but then it is ready to use.

Different from the larger sheets, the strips we can only provide for limited times in the year, as they need to be made from summer papyrus. This gives them a certain softness which we need for making the papyrus sheets ourselves. Our pack has a presorted bag of stripes, already correctly sized so that you can work with them. A detailed instruction with images is included that guide you. Even beginners will quickly achieve an effective result.

5 from 5 Easy to use, looks to be a great product

Using the papyrus strips purchased here removes the difficulty of slicing papyrus pith uniformly. So far it looks like it will produce a fine sheet of papyrus paper.
My only criticism is the sales blurb says the pack includes enough strips to make five A5-size pieces. That is not correct. The kit needs at least 10 more of the shorter strips. When i dry assembled each set (after dividing them evenly by five) i found i was lacking by about two short strips on each piece. Go ahead, try it yourself, dry assembling them. I had to cannibalize one set in each order to make up the lack.
But will I buy again? You betcha! Next time though the larger set, when it’s available.
