From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Amalfi paper, also known as Charta Bambagina, is a particular and precious type of paper produced since the Middle Ages in the city of Campania.
Amalfi paper owes its second name, Charta Bambagina, to the particular production process, which, apart from the use of cellulose obtained from wood, starts from collections of white linen, cotton and hemp rags and rags.
These fabrics were in the past reduced to pulp by means of nailed hammers moved by hydraulically propelled mills (still visible in the area today), today instead through more sophisticated machinery that allows greater refinement.
The fiber, dissolved in water, was and is then, by hand, transformed into sheets by means of frames made of brass and bronze threads, mostly bearing in filigree, the coats of arms of the ancient noble families of the city.
