DEAR ALT LIST,
     I use only 100% cotton paper for my alt photo prints including COT
320, Cranes Platinotype, etc., etc.  Where do the mills get the cotton?  Do
they purchase raw cotton or do they use recycled "rag" material?  In the
old days the paper and boards were referred to as 100% rag paper or board.
I was wondering if they still used recycled material or if they buy cotton
directly from the agricultural suppliers?
                CHEERS!
                         BOB
