The Making of Saa Paper
Saa Paper is made in northern Thailand, using traditional techniques. The bark of the Mulberry Tree is harvested in a non-destructive operation. It is shredded into small strips and soaked overnight, loosening the fibers. Next, the fibers are boiled for 2-6 hours. When finished, the fibers are washed with fresh water to remove impurities and small particles or specks are removed by hand. The fibers are then beaten to a creamy pulp and coloring or accents are added if desired. The pulp is poured into a large tub, where the fibers are suspended in water. The artisan dips a framed screen into the water and with great skill, lifts it to the surface, catching the fibers onto the screen. The screens can either be left in the sun to dry, or be transferred to boards, pressed, smoothed and then dried. The result is a paper full of texture and design.
Gardenia – Blooms of garden flowers and tuberose, giving way to deeper tones of gardenia, for a notably feminine fragrance.
Jasmine – The intoxicating aroma of jasmine is blended with irresistibly tropical plumeria for an alluring fragrance that is forever sensual.
