Egyptian Papyrus Paper
Our papyrus paper is handmade in Egypt from the inner stem of the finest Cyperus Papyrus plants. Our suppliers responsibly grow their own plants, then use the inner stems to make the thin strips form which the final papyrus sheets are formed.
The sheets are formed by arranging the strips side by side in two cross layers, then soaking them in water for six to twelve weeks. The sheets are then hammered to squeeze out the remaining water, dried, then polished and cut to size. The result is an exquisite natural cotton like, yet slightly textured handmade paper like you’ve never seen before.
The process of crafting papyrus paper is a green eco friendly process that goes back thousands of years ago. All the steps are made by hand, and the Papyrus Paper gets its unique neutral color naturally from soaking into water. The more the sheets are soaked the darker they become.
Painting on papyrus paper creates a magnificent textured unique piece of art, that you can hang on your wall and be sure that it will impress you, as well as your guests every time you look at it.
