Handmade Eco Paper - 100% Cotton
Weight: 300gsm / 140lb
Size: 10” x 14” / 25 x 35cm
Our very own Eco friendly 100% cotton, internally & externally gelatine sized, deckle edged handmade paper from India.
The machinery normally used to make paper uses a considerable amount of energy, turning paper pulp into a giant roll of perfectly dry paper in barely a minute. Our handmade papers however are made from recycled cotton, they are individually set into the moulds and then dried slowly in the Indian sun. The water used in the production is then run off to irrigate the field neighbouring the factory. These papers are also made in special small moulds which allows us to produce beautiful deckle edged sheets in 1/4 & 1/2 imperial sizes. All papers are available at an unbeatable price!
1/4 and 1/2 sheets are deckled on all four sides of the 140lb & 200lb papers.
It is a challenging surface but those who love it find it very rewarding. It is a very soft paper and has low sizing so you have to be an confident watercolourist or an experimentalist to love it.
