The craft of making handmade paper has its origins in the Kagzi community that specialized in the making of paper. This community accompanied Mughal emperor Babur to India and settled in Sanganer on the invitation of Maharaja Jai Singh. It is extremely eco-friendly as it is acid free and consumes less energy and water in comparison to machine made paper. Production cluster centers around Sanganer. Tools such as sieve, scissors and vats are used for the process of making this paper.
