Our Packaging

Hand crafted in Bali with integrity and named Saraswati Papers for the Hindu Goddess of the arts, beauty, knowledge, and poetry – people continually tell us that our papers and products embody all of these divine attributes. What makes them even more special is that our inspired products are created using recycled and other sustainable materials.

Australian, Kali Sari, founder of Saraswati Papers recognized that Bali was struggling with ever-increasing pollution caused by a growing and modernizing society. With this concern and a life-long interest in all things paper, she started to put her kitchen blender to new use and began to experiment making handcrafted paper from recycled materials.

Working out of her house and kitchen for the first six months, Kali enlisted a team of Balinese village women to learn the skillful art of paper-making. The methods used were the ancient and traditional process of blending, dipping and pressing sheets of paper by hand and hanging it out to dry. The result was exceptional hand-crafted paper.

Each folio of our hand-made paper is made using 100% post consumer recycled paper collected from schools, offices, hotels and homes around Bali. It is colored using natural dyes taken from the earth, roots and leaves, and is textured with the addition of sustainable plant fibers such as bamboo and flower petals. No chemicals, bleaches or unsustainable practices are used at any stage of the paper making process. The variations and irregularities, which occur in our products are a reflection of the art itself and distinguish Saraswati Papers as a handmade product of environmental integrity. There is no sort of production line, the papers and products are handmade – from start to finish – in our garden-front studio by our group of creative local women.

Saraswati Papers open their factory to group tours with a focus on trying to get young people to change the way they think about rubbish – how to reduce, reuse and recycle – and always encourages their visitors to get hands on with the process.

School students from around Bali are elbow deep in a mushy paste of recycled paper, eagerly stirring and straining. The industrial blender whirrs its magic and mush turns to pulp in front of us all while various products from the earth such as leaves, roots, as well as coffee and tea are added for natural dyes. In addition, sustainable plant fibers such as bamboo and flowers petals are added for texture.

Then the delicate process of laying paper begins. The careful placing of petals, the layering of leaves and the intricate application of shreds of grass becomes an intensely creative pursuit, invoking the image of Saraswati, the Hindu Goddess of beauty, knowledge and poetry, for whom the company is named.

The boys and girls involved create patterns and variations in color with the helpful assistance of the Balinese staff, and by the time all the mush has become pulp and the pulp had become paper, the washing lines are full of delicate sheets to be wrapped and presented the very next day.

This form of education for school children offers a great opportunity to see the way businesses are approaching solutions to waste. It also provides them the experience to try something for themselves and take home some beautifully crafted paper. Innovation and creation are the brain child of all new learning.
