We follow a harvest of reeds, their transformation into cellulose, then into pasteboard, which is cut up and ground into pulp. What we’re witnessing is a “chemical storm which gives rise to a miracle,” converting the product into fibre as “soft and light as snow.” Seven reeds are enough to make one suit.
