A papermaker has always been a laborious process, and with its origins in the ancient art of papermaking it is no surprise that a papermaker’s skills are often more important than the physical tool that creates the paper.
The new papermakers is an example of this: the papermakers paper is made from recycled material, which it can be recycled and reused.
The papermakers was founded by two brothers, Ian and Tom, after they realised they were going to need to make a few different paper products.
The brothers realised that their first attempt to make paper was a waste of time, and decided to start a papermaking company, with the aim of using the recycled material to produce more efficient paper.
“We were trying to do something a little different, something different and more affordable, and we realised that the old ways were not going to cut it,” Ian and Sam said in a press release.
“We thought, ‘Why don’t we try to make something a bit more sustainable, a little bit more eco-friendly?'”
The brothers decided to build an eco-design papermaking machine to produce paper that was eco-responsible.
The papermakers machine, the paper, and the papermaker are made from the recycled paper.
“A lot of our paper is recycled from cardboard boxes, but that is not all,” Ian said.
“The recycled paper is then used in the manufacture of a range of other things, such as paper bags, pens, pencils, notebooks, pensets, paper towels and much more.”
The brothers have since expanded their business to include papermaking machines for other products, and they hope to expand their business beyond papermaking to papermaking for other industrial and commercial purposes, such the paper recycling industry.
Ian said they were not yet sure what the future holds for their papermaking business, but they have set up a GoFundMe account to help cover the cost of a new office and equipment to manufacture their new papermaking products.
“As a small business, we do not have the capital or resources to continue with this business,” Ian explained.
“So we need your help to build the shop, to expand and improve our equipment and to keep the business going.
We would like to use the money you give to help us continue making our products and to improve the environment.””
This is the biggest project we have ever undertaken, and if we do it right, it could be our biggest one ever,” Tom added.
“This is just a start, but we hope it will be the beginning of a lot of other papermaking businesses, that are going to help people in Ireland and around the world.”
The new paper, which is called the The Irish Papermaker, is the latest in a series of papermakers in Ireland that are trying to take a step forward in terms of recycling and sustainable production.
In 2013, The Irish Postman Company was the first papermaker to use recycled paper in a production facility.
In 2015, the Cork Papermaker Group was the only papermaker in the world to use reclaimed paper to make their paper.
These companies are all doing things differently.
The Irish papermaker is not the only one to start using recycled paper, but it is the first one to use it in a paper manufacturing process that was entirely inorganic, and not using petroleum or coal.
“It was the biggest challenge we faced,” said Sam.
“For us, it was just one of those things where we had to be flexible and adapt to different environments.
We had to decide how we were going.
It is an important step forward for us to continue making paper in our factory, and hopefully that will make our products more sustainable,” he said.
Ian and Tom are not the first people to use a recycled papermaking process to make products.
A group of paper makers in the UK are using recycled plastic to make all sorts of things, including a range from paper towels to paper bags.
“I think we are just starting to get our feet wet,” Sam said.
