We are in love with
the textures, the versatility, the rich colors, the romance and yes,
the sensual quality of handmade papers. We are dedicated to continuously
exploring and expanding this product area, as well as coming up with
great new ways to work with this wonderful stuff!Most of our papers are considered acid free. They are actually acid neutral meaning they fall in the ideal range for longevity, between acid and alkaline. Our papers are not made of wood and therefore lignin is not a concern. We do have two collections that have a higher acid content. They are the Firenza and Not-a-hide collections. While these papers are not recommended for scrap booking, they are wonderful for crafts and general paper projects.The handmade nature of our papers sometimes will require a wet fold tear, leaving a smooth cut with a slightly ragged edge, excellent for small work. Heavier papers tear okay against a ruler or need to be cut. Experiment with decorative scissors, as they need to be sharp for a crisp clean cut on handmade papers. They will work best on our lightweight papers such as Mandalay or any of the Project Papers. Large even patterns with precise cutting will be beautiful when applied to our softer papers like Eurorap and Chamois Quilt.Handmade Paper are produced in screens and are oversized. Be sure to check the sizes, you may be able to get up to 6, 12x12 pages from each sheet!
Due to the fragile nature of paper, items are not returnable.
