This dress is 100% paper. Including the straps!! The bodice is made from handmade paper made from a mix of pulps: Japanese bark, rhubarb, apple and banana skins. All prepared from scratch. And the skirt is a kind of mulberry paper that is very fine and translucent...and dances with the light. The straps and the join in the back of the bodice is made from very fine paper yarn which I bought a week or so ago from a fellow paper lover Linda Thalmann. More artwork incorporating handmade paper can be seen on display in KunstCentrum Tholen.
