History Of Kraft Paper

Early in the 19th century, when the large-scale retail industry was not yet in existence, people usually purchased everything of daily items in a grocery store near a place of work or residence. The daily necessities of being packed in wooden barrels, sacks, or wooden boxes and shipped to grocery stores in large quantities, but how to sell them to the consumers in a scattered manner is a headache for people can only go shopping with a basket or a handmade burlap bag. At that time, the papermaking materials were still jute fiber and old linen heads, which were of poor quality and were scarce in quantity, and could not even meet the needs of newspaper printing. Around 1844, the German Friedrich Kohler invented wood pulp and papermaking, which greatly promoted the development of the paper industry and indirectly led to the history of the first commercial paper bag. In 1852, the American botanist Francis Waller invented the first paper bag making machine, which was subsequently extended to European countries such as France and Britain. Later, the emergence of plywood paper bags and the advancement of paper bag sewing technology have made cotton cloth bags that were used for bulk cargo transportation in the past replaced by paper bags.
