Strong, durable mulberry paper that is satisfyingly knobbly. The Soft Textured Mulberry Paper, Code 0133 has a rougher surface, but is softer and it has long ‘floating’ strands of mulberry bark in it. The texture is created naturally when dried in the sun on the deckle. An authentic classic in the world of paper. Excellent for craft work like book and box covering.
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 north 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.
