USP A va­ri­ety of eco- friendly pa­per prod­ucts avail­able un­der one roof

A lit­tle known se­cret of Ahmed­abad, the Kalam- Khush pa­per fac­tory was set up way back in the year 1940 and since its in­cep­tion has been run by the Gu­jarat Khadi Gramodyog Man­dal. Lo­cated right op­po­site the Gandhi ashram, one can watch the pa­per mak­ing pro­ce­dure step by step at the fac­tory— right from the grind­ing and soak­ing of the pulp, spread­ing of the pre­pared mix­ture on a screen that makes fine flat sheets, dry­ing it us­ing clips and fi­nally putting the fin­ished sheets in a cal­en­dar press for that crisp, even fin­ish. These sheets of pa­per are then stacked in the store as loose sheets or con­verted into di­aries, fold­ers, lamp shades, scrap books, en­velopes and greet­ing cards, all of which are for sale. The pa­per here is made pri­mar­ily out of cot­ton waste and there­fore is eco- friendly as well.
