A great little gift for any child interested in ancient Egypt, each papyrus bookmark is made using the traditional method of soaking and flattening thin strips of reed stalks.
The first use of papyrus paper is believed to have taken place around 4000 BC. The ancient Egyptians kept the technology of papyrus-making secret, enabling them to hold the monopoly on its production.
Your bookmark will be chosen at random from a selection of 40 assorted designs, each comes in a clear wallet, and with a colourful cord attached.
Materials: Natural papyrus
Dimensions: Length approx 14cm
