 Antique Hand Made Vellum Paper:
 
   Legendary papers for calligraphy & writing that were hand made in the great British paper mills of the past.
 
These papers were made 60-70 years ago,Only a few sheets are available
 
   When wove paper was introduced in England and France in the late 1700's it was so fine and smooth it became known as paper vellum- originating in France as the term "Paper ve'lin".
     
Paper Vellum also known as vegetable parchment has distinct advantages : evenness of surface for delicate work and lower cost than leather parchment.
 
These Antique buff parchment colored papers were expertly sized to bring out crispness in calligraphy with watercolor or ink. Great for calligraphy, illumination, family crest or tree.
 
These rare papers have an exquisite smooth hot pressed texture. They are semi transparent.
Each sheet is slightly different as they were hand made by the best paper making artisans of the time.
 
It is made of 100% cotton and linen rag. Linen adds strength.
