Papyrus Manufacturing Tour and learn Papyrus making in Egypt

Papyrus Institute Papyrus is an important part of Egypt’s history. The raw material used to make this ancient paper comes from the stalk of the Cyperus papyrus plant,which has a brittle interior and a tough exterior and grows in damp regions of the Nile Delta. Its method of production was a well­-kept secret for many years, allowing the ancient Egyptians to have a monopoly over its production and distribution.

The Papyrus Institute is a government-­approved museum and shop not far from the Pyramids in Giza, where visitors can browse and buy a huge selection of hand­-painted papyrus prints. Prices range from the cheap to the very expensive, but bear in mind that these prints are the authentic article and make for some quality souvenirs.

Staff at the Papyrus Institute talk visitors through the entire process of manufacturing papyrus, including a demonstration of exactly how it is made.
