Amate Bark Paper


Mexican Amate Bark Papers

Natural Paper for Use in Design, Decor and Art Projects

Go back to ancient times with this great Mexican Amate Paper! This ancient bark paper dates back to pre-Columbian and Meso-American times and is still hand made by the Otomi Indian artisans of Mexico using the same methods of their Mesoamerican ancestors from 3000 years ago. 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, unique and earthy tones of the tree bark perfectly blend together for an incredible art, design and craft paper! Each sheet of this exotic Mexican paper is handmade providing a unique and natural touch to any project! The Mexican Amate Bark Paper is acid-free and comes in a variety of natural colors. The solid, non-woven papers are laser and ink-jet printer compatible!

Due to the hand-made nature of the paper and the use of natural bark, 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.
