Our Paper

           

Our handmade papers are created with calligraphers, stationers and brides in mind. Created mainly from a blend of abaca and cotton with occasional wispy Kozo fibers added to our tissue paper mix. Soft to the touch with beautiful texture yet smooth enough to allow your nib to glide across the surface. Our natural deckle edges create a lovely, handmade canvas.

We offer a few different weights of paper -  medium and heavy weight sheets, tissue and vellum. Medium weight is ideal for calligraphy and digital printing. This weight can also be used for letterpress to create a KISS, or shallow impression. Our Heavy weight is ideal for letterpress with a deep impression.

Medium is @110 - 150gsm and heavy is @250-300gsm. Calligraphy nibs may pose a challenge on our heavy weight paper due to the texture and softness. 

Each sheet is unique to itself, no two will ever be exactly the same. They all are perfectly imperfect and for this reason batch colors and sheet size may vary slightly. Deckle edges vary from piece to piece and may need to be trimmed to fit some envelopes, we do not guarantee that they will fit all manufactured envelopes. Ordering a sample pack is the best way to view our colors.

If you would like a custom size sheet, please contact us and we'll do our best to accommodate your request.
