Empowering Artisan's in Esteli
Who made it.. The Associated of Women Environmentalist was founded by 5 women in concern for the health of their children that were playing in a stretch of land that was used for an illegal dumping ground that was filled with anything from trash to dead animals. Once they cleaned up the area they learned how to make paper from recycle paper along with different fruit & vestibule skins which they now are sing to make these journals. Sea el Cambio helps create new designs.
How it was made…. The women mix recycled paper with plant-based waste such as banana stalks, corn husks coconut shells. A handmade screen is submerged into the mixture to form each sheet of paper then is placed in a press for an hour. The paper is placed on a board and put out into the sun to dry which can take anywhere from 3 hours to 3 days to dry. Once the paper is dry the women come together and artfully craft the paper into beautiful greeting cards, journals and gift bags.
