Description

Sorry, we could not translate this listing to English.
Korau-Vegetable card.

Map of handmade paper where a disc of a white onion is dried.
The HANDGESCHEPTE paper is stuck on a double card of agricultural residues-cardboard.


Format: A6.

The card comes with an envelope made of paper from agricultural remains.


With a mandolin, a thin disc (1.5-3 mm) of a vegetable is cut for the Korau vegetable cards. The disc is briefly blanched in boiling water, depending on the vegetable 10-20 sec.
Afterwards, the disc is dried in a wooden press between wipes and newspapers. There is a lot of moisture, so newspapers and wipes have to be changed regularly to prevent fungal formation. When the disc is reasonably dry it is placed on a skin handmade paper that is also almost dry. In the press it now dries up to a whole. Both paper and vegetables contain fibres. Damp fibers can attach pressure. Therefore, the natural properties of paper and vegetables are used, so no glue is needed.

The paper pulp needed for the paper creation is made from used cardboard coffee cups. Reuse/recycling. These coffee cups have no wax-layer but a starch coating.

Each card is unique, because the paper piece is created by piece (not cut out of a larger sheet) and contains a real vegetable disc.

Limited edition: There are 5.
On the overview picture they are all 4. For variations you can indicate which card you want.
