about our handmade paper:
we make our handmade paper in house using 100% recycled cotton remnants from the garment industry. we charge our vats with water and cotton fibers, draw our molds and deckles through this slurry nearly 70 times per day, then drain, deposit (couch) onto lightweight felts, and press the post of wet sheets under hydraulic pressure. we air dry these sheets overnight and pull them from the felts each morning into deckled stacks of rough edged handmade paper, with stunning surface texture.oblation was founded on practicing a green approach and we follow recycling principals that focus on reuse and conservation. our master paper maker kalin stoev leads the handmade paper production process and on most days can be found in the paper-making studio mixing paper pulp, pulling paper, or experimenting.
how can i use this handmade paper pack?
the papers can be used in many ways, and their use ultimately depends on your own creative endeavors! we’ve seen handmade paper used in collage, assemblage, gift embellishment, stationery, letterpress printing, and much more. many hand lettering artists and calligraphers find it to be the perfect backdrop to their work.
