After they remove impurities, they do process called Chiritori to remove waste and hard fibers. It's manual work picking themup one by one. Even if they work all day long, sometimes they can only get a bucketful of the material. After they get the good fiber, they pound and break the fiber in two processes. Then they get this cotton-like material. This paper making process epitomizes the production of Japanese paper.
