Saa Mobile - Owl

£8.50

Saa paper is a special, thin paper that is handmade in Thailand from the bark of the mulberry tree. The bark is harvested using a technique of coppicing, allowing the tree to regrow. After being dried, the bark is soaked until it becomes very soft. This softened bark is then fed through a pulping machine which turns the bark to a thick, porridgey consistency. This is then mixed in a vat with water where a wood and muslin frame is submerged briefly. The frames are then placed in the sun where the liquid dries to form a sheet of Saa paper!

This wonderfully bright mobile makes a pleasant noise when blown in the wind or moved due to the small bells hanging below each of the little owls.
