This colourful paper is created by hand at Auroville Papers in southern India. Leaves from the Bauhinia (orchid tree) are soaked in different colours of dye and then pressed on the handmade paper, leaving behind colour and texture. Auroville Papers uses 100 percent vegetal fibres for their paper making and promotes the economic and social progress of their employees, of whom more than 70 percent are women from local villages.
These papers would be wonderful to use in mixed media collages and all kinds of paper crafts. Embellish them with paints and inks or leave them as they are and turn them into the covers of small notebooks, bookmarks, note cards, gift tags and even weave with it. You will receive a one-of-a-kind paper pack carefully packaged in a reusable clear cellophane bag.
Choose from blue, green or red (three pieces of each colour).

I'll do my best to meet these shipping estimates, but can't guarantee them. Actual delivery time will depend on the shipping method you choose.
Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. I'm not responsible for delays due to customs.
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
If you would like to order a customized book, please contact me.
To make the pages for my books, I fold one long sheet of paper in half so that it turns into 4 pages when you count both sides of the page. So a book with 176 pages of writing or drawing paper contains 44 sheets of paper folded in half. And a sketchbook with 88 pages of watercolour paper contains 22 sheets of paper folded in half.
I use Canada Post and will ship your order promptly – often on the same day I receive it – but I can't guarantee how quickly it will reach you, even if you have select ed expedited shipping. You are responsible for providing me with the correct name and address for shipping, and I cannot be held responsible for incorrect information.
