The food waste is becoming a worldwide problem. In order to solve this problem permanently, we considered using it as material to create papers. Our culture has a history of using papers for a long period of time in Japan and there exists a special paper making process involving drawing method. We look forward to bringing out various textured papers in mixing food waste particles with the original material to make paper. Please experience the tactile sensations, fragrance, strength and brittleness of the finished products.
