Welcome

Welcome to the Green Banana Paper blog!  

We will be updating you on our daily life here at the factory and share with you "behind the scenes" info on how and why we do what we do.  

So we've been using the rare fibers found on our island to make paper since February 2015.  In this picture, you see Mr. Clifton Mongkeya with several fresh A1 size papers.   He's standing at our home-made vacuum table which reduces water content in the sheet before setting the sheets under the sun to dry.  This is the Nepalese style of paper making where the dipped sheet dries while stuck to the screen.  

Getting the papers to dry flat is a major challenge.  The hot and cold of the tropical sun and passing rain showers plays havoc on the drying papers!  Over time, we have been able to overcome these challenges with the experience and thoughtfulness of our paper makers like Clifton.
