According to Chinese tradition, the invention of paper dates back to 105 A.D., when Tsai Lun, a great court official, expressed his inspiration to the Han-dynasty emperor Ho-ti. His idea was to create paper from materials such as tree bark, hemp fibers, old rags, and pieces of silk. He mashed all these materials by pounding them in the water. Afterwards he poured the pulp on a flagstone and let it dry in the sun. The art of making paper spread rapidly throughout the world.
