I found that 'mulberry paper' is something I always knew as "rice paper', and it was named that because it was used to wrap rice. It is made from mulberry bark tree, and less commonly from rice straw. I did not know that: I thought rice paper was made of rice straw only and took its name from it.
It is used to make beautiful and quite sturdy things such as flowers, lights, lampshades, stationery, etc. I searched through Etsy and made a Treasury consisting solely of mulberry paper items. A picture is worth a thousand words.

The beautiful rose pin which is being given away by Spearmint and Thyme is in the top left corner.
I am in love the lights by Smilelight and illuminera. I love lights and lamps of all sorts, and these are very special.
NineGiftShop, RagWreathBoutique, butterflies661, isakayboutique, SolBijou and ShinyMonkeyButtons make adorable flowers. Some are very life-like, while others are stylized, but all of them are beautiful.
I just noticed I included items by cottonlight twice - the prettiest white lanterns and magic color lights - but the items are so lovely, I will keep both listings in.
Baby flower headband by TeagansTotShop is very cute.
CraftsByCamilleShop offers nice and simple paper favor bags, invitesbythisandthat - stylish invitations which use the same mulberry paper.
Then there is also a souvenir from Thailand - a very rustic looking notebook by ThaiCharm.
And the last, but a very important part of the Treasury, is a listing with mulberry paper for crafting, offered by NightOwlPaperCrafts.
Now, this was a useful exercise for me. Here at Mulberry Whisper we are supposed to know everything about mulberry, including mulberry paper. Unfortunately it is not produced in Uzbekistan; if it were, we would certainly make something from it for our own Etsy shop. As it is now, all I can do is enjoy someone else's creations from this wonderful material.
