The first thing that comes to my mind is using vegetable inks and printing out permaculture leaflets / one page flow charts for dummies and selling that as well.
Necessity inspires invention, and 17th-century Dutch papermakers looked for alternatives to the water-powered stamp mills used in Germany. Though the name is lost, and the date is in question (between 1660 and 1682), we know that an inventor in Holland eventually came up with a method for beating pulp that required no river power, did away with the additional time-consuming step of fermentation, and produced a higher quality product. The machine this inventor produced is today named simply after its country of origin.

We are passionate about our portable studio model, which is the cornerstone of Peace Paper Project. It is not just about convenience; this system has become our passport to connecting with international communities. The benefits of hand papermaking are most clearly experienced first-hand, so it makes our work all the more accessible to have the equipment that we use handy and easy to transport.
This page is dedicated to the resources, materials and approximate costs for developing a portable paper studio.
We invite you to contact us if you have any questions regarding information on materials, scheduling a visitation by Peace Paper or taking advantage of our training opportunities.
