Papyrus was first manufactured in Egypt, as far back as the third millennium BC.
Papyrus plants grow 2-3m (5–9 ft) tall. They were first used in Ancient Egypt, but they were also used throughout the Mediterranean region. The Egyptians also used the papyrus plants to make boats, mattresses, mats, rope, sandals, and baskets.
