This is traditional Saa paper in an array of rich, vibrant colours consisting of White, Grey, Black, popular Earthtones and range of Solid colors. We are one of very few manufacturers who actually make traditional handmade mulberry paper with a smooth finish. Our Smooth Textured mulberry paper, code 0121 has all the great characteristics of its textured cousin including strength and durability but it can also be used for writing and printing on as well. One added bonus is that this handmade paper is cheaper to ship since it is less bulky!
Our handmade paper is made by traditional techniques using a teak wood mould/deckle, so our 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.
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 north of Thailand and also in neighbouring Laos and Burma. Handmade mulberry paper from Thailand is also sometimes referred to by its Japanese name kozo, although paper here is no longer made from kozo, which is a different genus of tree. Interestingly, the Japanese import most of their mulberry raw material from Thailand and neighbouring countries and make it into washi and other papers.
