Papermaking is an art form in China, and the country has been producing its own papermaking since the 14th century.
The earliest evidence of the papermaking arts can be found in the early days of the Tang Dynasty (618-907), when the Ming Dynasty ruled China from 1268 to 1279.
During this time, papermaking was a mainstay of Chinese society, and it is estimated that about 200 million people made paper during the period.
Today, China is home to more than 7,000 papermakers, making it one of the world’s most prolific papermaking countries.
The traditional way of making paper is a complex one, and there are many different techniques for creating paper, ranging from simple folding, to complex shapes, to paper-making tools such as the “pisspot” (also known as a “paper-making knife”).
Today, the traditional papermaking style in China is very different from that of the past.
Today’s papermakers are more interested in creating intricate patterns and delicate details, and many use paper tools that have a distinctive look.
In this article, we will explore the history of paper-makers, and what is still left to create.
