Indian Marble Papers

Marbled Indian Cotton Rag Paper

Acid-Free Marbled Cotton Paper Hand-Made in India

Inspired by textile colors and designs, Indian Cotton Rag Papers make outstanding papers for all art and design applications. Indian Rag Papers are made by hand using recycled, refined cotton from rags, clothing and textiles instead of pulp from the cotton seed as other papers. The cotton provides longer fibers in the paper providing exceptional strength and durability.

Starting with this rugged base paper, intricate marble patterns in every color of the rainbow are hand-painted creating a truly unique paper. After the color has been applied, metallic golds and silvers are introduced highlighting the flowing patterns.

Batik papers also start with the cotton rag base, but wax is used to prevent areas of the paper from getting dyed. By applying wax at different stages, a pattern with lots of depth and subtle color changes emerges.

Indian Cotton Rag Papers are acid-free and weigh approximately 100 to 110 gsm for a moderate weight, handmade paper lending itself to a multitude of art, craft and home décor uses as well as an excellent gift wrap.
