antaimoro-paper-1

Antaimoro is handmade paper made from the avoha tree bark and is decorated using pressed fresh flowers and leaves. The bark is soaked and pounded into a pulp with wooden mallets,  then spread and decorated with plants or local flowers and  placed in the sun to dry. This cream-colored decorative paper is used to make lampshades, envelopes, bond paper and even bags.
