Papyrus was a weed that grew wildly along the banks of the Nile River. It grew about 10 feet high. It was used to make everything! 

The ancient Egyptians used papyrus to make paper, baskets, sandals, mats, rope, tables, chairs, mattresses, medicine, perfume, food, clothes, and even boats. Truly, papyrus was a "gift of the Nile".
