      Hi

      I was wondering what the difference is between ‘Inkston 0809 Plus Xuan Paper’ and the ‘Inkston 0809 Xuan Paper’? I’ve noticed that there are a couple of papers with the same name difference but what makes it different? The percentage of tree used to make the paper?

      My other question: what makes Song and Wenzhou paper so significant? The color, ingredients, absorption, … ?

      Thanks in advance

      Felice

      Plus is normally the 138 x 170cm size of paper which is nearly twice the size of the standard 100 x 50xm, see the paper size chart and explanation here:

      Xuan Paper Buyer Guide

      the actual sizes are specified on the product descriptions:

      INKSTON 0809 Xuan Paper

      the Wenzhou papers and Japanese papers are from mulberry tree bark rather than the Qing Tan used in Xuan paper. The Song papers are a special blend and each one is different.

        The paper made with mulberry tree bark is more water absorbent than other Xuan papers I suppose then?
