Item details

Eight 8 x 10 inch handmade abaca kozo paper, dyed lavender.

This paper is remarkably thin, with very deckled edges, yet it's really strong. I make all of my papers from plant fibers 9 not recycled paper)

It's composed of 2 fibers: the white inner bark,fiber from the kozo tree, which I cook, clean and beat by hand and abaca fiber.

Abaca is a very strong versitle pulp from the banana leaf. It's commonly known in the international trade as Manila Hemp and is considered the strongest of natural fibers.It is 3 times stronger than Sisal fiber, and is far more resistant to salt water decomposition than most of the vegetable fibers.

I dyed the pulp lavender before forming the sheets.Each sheet was pulled separately, pressed and placed on boards to dry in the sun.
