Kozo papermaking with a little twist.

There is a small video documentation on making paper using kozo fibre.
It's made the Japanese method... Well not exactly. I haven't got the original sugeta those days and was forced to make my own. I'm using flexible silk screen to make sheets.
All equipment made by me.  The video was recorded mostly at Academic Lithography Studio in Olsztyn. POLAND. Feb 2014.

It was a great papermaking quest.

Enjoy.
