Papyrus was the most important writing material in the ancient world. Our word "paper" derives from the word "papyrus," an Egyptian word that originally meant "that which belongs to the house" (the bureaucracy of ancient Egypt). Papyrus is an early form of thick paper-like material produced from the pith of the papyrus plant, Cyperus papyrus, a wetland. The new line of Papyrus papers is imported directly from Egypt.
