3D Design background – Papyrus

The Egyptians used papyrus to produce paper as far back as the fourth millennium BC. The Egyptians spent their time and effort creating finely crafted papyrus scrolls for use in their writing. It was also used to make baskets, sandals, mats, mattresses, boats, rope, and other things. Throughout the centuries, papyrus processing continued. The plant survived in Egypt even as more advanced paper techniques were developed elsewhere.
