Make Papyrus at home Kit:

Long before there were books or newspapers the Egyptians found a way to record history. They designed their own paper called papyrus from reeds. The word "paper" comes from the Egyptian word "papyrus" which means "that which belongs to the house."

Papyrus is made from a plant which grows on the Nile River's banks in Egypt. The plant " Cyperus papyrus" grows up to 15 feet high. It has a green color, its stem is triangular  and has long, sharp leaves and flower clusters 10 to 20 inches long. Ancient Egyptian used the stem of the plant for several purposes like making mattresses, chairs and boats but the most popular use was making papyrus.

 

Now you have the chance to feel the joy and happiness experienced by the ancient Egyptians when they found a way to send their text to  somewhere else, because people were unable to mobilize the texts engraved  on stones and rocks to any other place.

KingTutShop introduces a miniaturized kit replicating the steps carried thousands of years ago to produce the Genuine Egyptian Papyrus. The Papyrus  kit can be used as an educational tool for your kids, and can be used also as a professional tool for Egyptologists, artists and  painters who like to have the Genuine Egyptian Papyrus hand-made by themselves whenever they need and wherever they want. The kit is very simple to use and comprises the following:

  1. A  mechanical press composed of two flat layers of high impact resistance wood , bolts and nuts.

  2. Wrench for tightening the press

  3. Loose strips of Cyperous Papyrus plant sufficient for making three separate papyrus sheets

  4. Six reusable blank cotton sheets to absorb the water from the wet Papyrus strips (two per each drying cycle)

  5. One Papyri having the Hieroglyph Alphabet & the equivalent English Alphabet, to enable the user to write any text in Hieroglyphic language.

  6. A detailed step-by-step instructions to process the Cyperus Papyrus strips till you get the final product.
