This is fine 49 gsm paper, in 70 * 138 cm. Linen fibre is added in the paper’s raw materials and the paper is yellowish.

It is suitable for calligraphy since the paper ‘bites’ ink very well. The paper itself is raw paper but it shows effects of ‘half-cooked’ Xuan paper.

Specially handmade paper with traditional recipes. This paper is added with natural linen. Although it is not sized, it shows natural half-cooked effects. We would recommend this for calligraphy purposes because this paper absorbs, or we say ‘bites ink’ in Chinese, very well.

The paper’s colour is natural yellow beige and is not chemically modified. It shows a natural aged appearance.

  1. Exactly as described and produces better then any in its class.

  2. The Ancient Linen is very different but amazing quality – so much better than the ‘bark’ papers I have bought before in the UK. I think it will work very well for landscape and calligraphy.

  3. Beautiful paper. Packaging was very careful. Thank you very much!
