Description

Handmade by the Otomi artisans of Mexico, this beautiful amate paper is created using the same methods that their Mesoamerican ancestors used 3000 years ago. Boiled and pounded from the bark of amate "wild fig" tree, xalama, jonote and mulberry trees, this acid free paper is a wonderful choice for fine art uses including acrylic or gouache paintings, ink and pastel drawings, stamping, blockprinting, bookmaking/bookbinding, and paper crafts. Due to the use of natural bark and the handmade process, each sheet is unique and will vary in shade, color, weight and pattern. Size is approximate, due to the deckle edges and drying process.
