A 100% mulberry paper that is almost twice as heavy as regular 0121 wrapping paper and is smoothed by hand. Suitable for writing and printing on. This is the paper of choice used by local greeting card makers here in Chiang Mai. It is a very economical purchase: you can cut nine A5 folded cards from a single sheet of paper.
Our handmade paper is made by traditional techniques using a teak wood mould/deckle. Handmade papers take the size of the mould and have four deckled edges.
Due to the uneven quality of deckled edges, the dimensions of each sheet of handmade paper will vary slightly - typically up to 1cm.
A note on cutting handmade paper to smaller sizes with straight edges: please allow about 2cm (1") all around the sheet for trimming to straight edges before cutting.
Mulberry paper is called saa paper in Thailand and there is only one variety of mulberry tree that is used today. The Latin name for this is Broussonetia Payrifera Vent and it grows abundantly in the norh of Thailand and also in neighbouring Laos and Burma. Handmade mulberry paper from Thailand is also sometimes referred to by the Japanese name kozo, although paper here is no longer made from kozo, which is a different genus of tree. The Japanese import most of their mulberry raw material from Thailand and neighbouring countries and make it into washi and other papers.
