INKSTON Extra Fine 45 Aged Appearance (light yellow) Xuan Paper
$19.30 – $136.00
Handmade in the most traditional way with spring water, rice straw, and 2 years old Pterocelti Tatarinowii tree barks. It takes 2 years to prepare raw materials and 7 days to make the paper.
INKSTON Extra Fine 45 (light yellow) paper contains 65-70% Pteroceltis Tatarinowii tree bark, with natural colouring from walnut skin to give the appearance of paper that has already been aged hundreds of years.
The fibres are steamed/boiled and the pulp mixed for longer than usual. This makes the paper finer and stronger than normal Xuan Paper. The paper is untreated/unsized (raw/uncooked in Chinese) and is suitable for all purposes and especially recommended for landscape drawings.
