What is money actually made of? you know its not paper right?

Most banknotes are made of heavy paper, sometimes mixed with linen, cotton, or other textile fibres. Generally, the paper used is different from ordinary paper: it is much more resilient, resists wear and tear, and also does not contain the usual agents that make ordinary paper glow slightly under ultraviolet light.

Actually, paper money is made from 75% cotton and 25% linen fibers. this is why it should take about 4,000 double folds (first forward and then backwards) before a paper bill will tear.
Although our money is made out of nylon or whatever that stuff is. Chai, this country must be the only one that makes its currency notes from polyethene. As per big clueless boys as leaders na. i fear for this country.
