Wax resist dyeing of fabric is an ancient art form. We have applied this technique to our handmade cotton paper.
Molten wax is applied to the paper. When the wax is dry and hard, the paper is scrunched and dipped into the dye bath. The colour penetrates through the cracks in the wax, thus rendering the beautiful crackled effect.
Simple yet effective, these papers have a natural textured effect which is very appealing.
As the dyes penetrate through the paper, these sheets are patterned on both sides making them usable on either side.
