INQ: Sources for the history of the Paper trade in the Maghrib

Hello! I am currently in search of any and all sources that would help elucidate the history of the paper trade in the Maghrib from the medieval period through the 19th century. Most of the studies up to now have focused on either Egypt or West Africa, only addressing the central Maghrib tangentially. Any suggestions for sources relating to the importation or production of paper in Bijāya, Algiers, Tlemcen, Tunis, Tripoli or other Maghribi ports would be very much appreciated!
