Egyptian Paper Made From the Papyrus Plant
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 layers and pressed and dried. Each handmade sheet of Papyrus is unique and often features frayed edges adding to its handmade character. Egyptian Papyrus weighs approximately 120 gsm giving it strength, ideal for painting, writing and drawing. You can also enjoy using papyrus in interior design and home decor as well as a large range of art projects.
Due to the hand-made nature of the paper and the use of natural papyrus, each sheet is one-of-a-kind and will vary in shade, color, weight and pattern. The available sheet sizes are approximate, due to the deckle edges and drying process.
