Information

Sunn Hemp Recycled Paper is made in the Northern region of India. The paper is made from  a mix of raw sunn hemp fibre and recycled sunn hemp. Each sheet is handmade on a chapri, which is a special glass stem screen. When finished the impression of the screen is slightly visible as a laid pattern. The sheets are then dried on a plaster wall and surface sized with wheat starch.  The paper is pressed between zinc sheets which gives the paper its characteristic smooth surface. 

Size of Sheet: 56 x 76cm. 100gsm in weight

The paper is a traditional islamic paper that is made for Khadi Papers by Mahomed Hussain Kagzi, perhaps the last surviving maker of this traditional paper. The surface sizing gives the paper a surprising amount of strength and prevents damage when used with wet media such as watercolours, gouache and inks. Inks are the suggested medium to use on this paper as it has been used with sunn hemp for centuries. Sunn Hemp Recycled Paper comes with a deckle-edge which provides a rough edge to the paper. A high quality handmade paper, designed for artist use that is loved by industry professionals and amateurs alike.

We recommend this paper for use with calligraphy and fine brush & pen work primarily as its unique manufacturing process, long fibres and non-absorbing properties provide it with excellent qualities that are suited for Ink working. As well as inks this paper is excellent for sketching or scrapbooking as it has a unique colour and texture. Indian locals have been using this paper for centuries with inks, producing religious texts and government records.
