  • Description

A fine speckled detailed Artist's Quality paper from Khadi Paper that has been crafted from the inner bark or bast fibre of mitsumata with chopped tea leaf. These papers are great for drawing in ink, calligraphy and printmaking due to how they have been crafted. Mitsumata is a sustainable and renewable resource and the plants are cropped above ground and can be re harvested after 3-4 years. The papers are made by using the Japanese Nagashizuki dipping and layering method of paper making. This is what helps achieve a given thickness.The less layers there are the thinner it will be and the more layers the thicker. In this method the sheet is formed on a mat of fine bamboo called a su. The wet sheet is transferred from the su onto a pile of sheets which are then pressed to remove water. The sheets of paper are carefully separated and brushed onto zinc sheets to dry.

The smooth quality of this 30gsm hand crafted paper is one of a few made this way. Khadi's handmade quality can be seen in the edging and how each piece of paper will differ and have its own characteristics.
