I initially made this paper as a special order and loved it so much that I made more for myself and even more for my shop.
The paper is made from a combination of abaca fiber and the white inner bark from the kozo tree. It's remarkably thin, with very deckled edges, yet it's really strong.
I cook, clean and beat the kozo fiber by hand and then combine it with the abaca fiber and beat it again.
Abaca is a very strong versital 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
Listing is for eight sheets of 8 x 10 inch paper.
Gorgeous paper as always! And great customer service. Thanks Gayle x
