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.

This is fine 39gsm paper, in large 138x70cm size (I sheet has a surface area equivalent to 15 sheets A4).

Available in pack sizes:

  • 25 sheets half-width (0.43kg net weight)
  • 25 sheets (0.85kg net weight)
  • 50 sheets (1.7kg net weight)
  • 100 sheets (3.4kg net weight)

    I am trying to improve my calligraphy and the Expert Calligraphy paper was a ‘present to myself’ to encourage me to practice. It feels wonderful – slightly more absorbent than the semi sized (half cooked?) paper I normally use but of much higher quality.
