INKSTON Expert Calligraphy Xuan paper contains 65 to 75% Pteroceltis Tatarinowii tree bark, it is untreated/unsized (raw/uncooked in Chinese) and is suitable for both painting and calligraphy, especially recommendable for calligraphy.
Expert Calligraphy Xuan paper is made with Pteroceltis Tatarinowii which is only steamed and boiled once. Extra work is done on the pulp production to make the paper finer and stronger than normal Xuan Paper. When the paper is just made, it is untreated/unsized (raw/uncooked in Chinese) . However, after two months, the paper will have the same features as half-cooked Xuan Paper. This makes the paper perfect for calligraphy use. Since this paper is only made with Pteroceltis Tatarinowii and rice straw, the paper can be kept forever.
