A British filmmaker, Roland Carn, won the Finchley (England) Film Makers competition for the best film made on a smartphone with his 2017 video on how papyrus was made. This gives an overview of the entire process
Making papyrus in Egypt had nearly died out until the 1960s and 1970s when Dr. Anas Mostafa, a professor of fine arts, re-discovered the process and Dr. Hassan Ragab, owner of the “Pharonic Village” tourism park, began selling papyrus to tourists. A papyrus industry grew up in El-Karamous, a village in the Nile Delta, making papyrus for souvenirs. This interesting video tells the story, although you will have to read the translation in subtitles.
