Simplicity theme continues… Plagge and Blackcalla came up with very similar ideas, which kind of proves there must be some sort of meme thing going on.
Paper can be made out of many different raw materials like rags, hemp, cotton, bamboo and different kinds of wood. Best quality paper that lasts long is still made out of cotton rags but normally wood is used. Recycling help us not to waste the natural resources too fast but we still need to do more to save the forests.
Paper can be used for many purposes different than cloth would do. Paper keeps the form when folded and one can write and draw on it much easier than on cloth. Special papers are also good even for packaging food or can be used as a wallpaper.
Special uses of paper that interest me very much are origamis and paper planes. The paper plane models that flies best usually have rather heavy nose, thus making them fly like darts.
