Geocache Description:

På handpappersbruket i Lessebo - ett av Sveriges sista handpappersbruk - har man tillverkat handgjort papper sedan 1693. Det handgjorda papperet tillverkas än i dag på ungefär samma sätt som för 300 år sedan. Handpappersbrukets kapacitet är ca 20 kg papper per dag. En modern pappersmaskin producerar samma mängd på några sekunder. Det handgjorda papperet har genom sin speciella karaktär, en skönhet och en livslängd, som i dag är efterfrågat inom många områden.

Gömman består av ett rör som innehållit huvudvärkstabletter men som nu innehåller loggbok och penna.

At the handmade paper mill in Lessebo, one of the last remaining handmade paper mills in Sweden, paper has been made since 1693. The techniques used today to hand make paper have not changed much over the last 300 years. The daily production capacity of the handmade paper mill is approx. 20 kg. A contemporary paper machine can produce similar volumes in a matter of seconds. The handmade paper has its own individual finish, a natural beauty and shelf life, which is in demand in many sectors today.

The cache is cylindrical tube, previously containing headache tablets but now containing a logbook and a pencil.
