Warag Nakheel

We had the pleasure of visiting workshop studio for making palm tree papers "Warag Nakheel" in Manama. 

We were welcomed by two women who were very friendly, they walked us through the whole process of making the paper... Basically, they shred the palm tree leaves, filter the water and fine residues, then they lay them out in fabric screens to dry. 

The result are beautiful, neutral, and naturally-textured papers, with a team of young girls assisting in the workshop, they also provide different colored palm tree papers made with additional natural dyes.

It was really nice to see local paper made in our beautiful island... As beige and Teal we are looking forward to experiment with these and perhaps create collaborative ideas. 

 

Let us know if you know any similar places that we can visit in Bahrain =) 

Until then,

Salaam
