Made with environmentally friendly bamboo, this sheet has a small ecological footprint. Bamboo Select is heavier than other washi with a lovely soft surface making it ideal for printmaking and perfect for letterpress too. This paper is made up of 70% bamboo and 30% recycled kozo, which is internally sized.
Awagami Editioning Papers are crafted at the Awagami Mill wit the artistry and knowledge of 300 years of washi paper making. The papers are made using traditional Japanese fibers such as kozo and gampi as well as other non-tree fibres such as bamboo and cotton. Fibres are often skilfully combined yielding washi with highly unique textures and expressive characteristics. All washi in this collection features 4 feathery deckled edges that add a subtle refinement to finished works.
The Awagami Editioning Papers are acid free, archival and made with strict attention to quality and preservation. All the papers from this series may be used by artists for a wide range of techniques from ink to printmaking to drawing.
