When we entered the factory, we expected it to be smelly and unclean but one of the first things that our tour guide told us was that the Elephant dung doesn’t have any smell at all. The elephant dung is just plain fiber. Elephants digest their food poorly so over 50% of what they eat comes straight out the other end.
And true enough, there wasn’t any smell in the factory. So, how do they make the Elephant Dung to paper?
Here is the process:
The result? A beautiful, odorless, textured paper that is ideal to make handcrafted cards, bookmarks, notebooks, picture frames and etc.
