Amate Bark Paper has been used through the ages in religious and legal texts and as a canvas for painting. Made from Amate, Nettle, and Mulberry trees, the unique and earthy tones of the trees perfectly blend together for an incredible crafting paper!

Banana and Mango Paper:
Laced with inclusions, these Banana
Papers are a beautiful and durable addition to your paper collection and crafts. Mango and Banana Papers are also an environmentally-conscious paper. Banana trees and Mango bushes produce fruit only once a year and are then cut down, leaving abundant waste or by-product. Recycling the fiber from this by-product, into paper, helps to prevent the ecosystem’s rivers and forests from becoming polluted with waste. Banana and Mango Papers are available in a multitude of colors. Use these papers on their own, or in conjunction with similar papers such as Mulberry Paper and Kozo Paper.
Indian Cotton Paper
: Inspired by textile patterns and colors, Indian papers make outstanding papers for all art and design applications. Indian Cotton Papers use refined cotton from rags, clothing and textiles instead of pulp from the cotton seed as other papers. This provides longer fibers in the paper providing exceptional strength and durability. From this rugged base paper, intricate patterns or embossings are applied to create fun and interesting papers. Use Indian Cotton Paper in interior design, book binding, scrapbooking and any other paper art project.
: Papyrus, a renewable plant resource, is the oldest writing material in existence today, dating back at least 5,000 years. As early as 2000 BC, papyrus replaced stone and clay tablets and became the choice for legal and official documents. In fact, the word "paper" is derived from its name. Egyptian Papyrus Paper is formed by laying thin strips of papyrus plant stalk in horizontal and vertical (crosswise) layers. Each handmade sheet of Papyrus is unique and often features frayed edges adding to its handmade character. Egyptian Papyrus weighs 120 gsm giving it strength, ideal for painting, writing and drawing. Enjoy writing with Egyptian Paper made from Papyrus.
