Tibetan papermaking is a traditional craft.

First remove the living white tissue from wolfsbane's root. Then grind, dry, flatten, boil and beat into a paste. Next mix with water to form a paper pulp. Spread evenly on a filter to form a thin layer.

Leave outside for a few days to dry in the sun and the paper is finished.
