Thai Chiri Kozo is made from locally cultivated mulberry fibers (kozo) which are harvested from living mulberry trees - without harming the tree. The outer layer of bark is taken off the tree and the fibers taken from the “back” side of the bark.
This paper features tiny chips of small mulberry bark inclusions, adding dimension and texture to the sheet. The base fiber is kozo and it is a light, crisp and semi-translucent.
An all purpose paper and a student favorite, this paper is suitable for chine colle, block printing, repair & restoration, printmaking, lampshades and eastern calligraphy. There are two natural deckles and two cut edges.
