  • Marbled paper: There are many traditions of marbling from Turkish Ebru, Japanese Suminagashi or again Italian, each with their distinct style. Interestingly, marbling used to be considered a trade secret only available to the initiated. Maybe one reason for it was that it was used on the edge of a ledger and were a form of warrant of the integrity of the book. Indeed any page missing would create a disruption in the marbling pattern hence highlighting fraud… Only the most skilled and experienced can reproduce two similar form of marbling. So your book is bound to be unique as no two covers will be the same.
  • Khadi Paper: An excellent textured paper for photo-albums, I particularly like the deckled edge and its artisan feel, as featured above. This paper is made in Karnataka, South India, from 100% cotton rag. Cotton rags have longer fibres than linters which are the short fluffy fibres of the cotton seed often used in papermaking, making his paper vastly more resistant. Simply love it!
  • Elephant, Rhino paper: 120gsm rhino and elephant paper. Confused? This paper is 100% recycled. Made up of 30% fibre from elephant/rhino dung and 70% recycled paper, the papermaking process uses no trees or toxic chemicals. Instead, it applies only all-natural vegetative binding agents along with water soluble salt dyes for colouring. Handmade, acid-free, and organic, it uses 44% less energy, produces 38% less greenhouse gas emissions, 41% less particulate emissions, 50% less wastewater, 49% less solid waste, and—of course—100% less forest destruction than wood-based paper. Protect those rhino and elies, it is good for you! Finally, it is an excellent writing paper, no feathering, no bleeding – I love it!
  • Coptic Binding is the earliest form of binding for books as we know it today. It succeeded the earlier scroll format with oldest known examples date as far as 200AD. Widely spread by the 11th century, it bound all kind of material (papyrus, parchment, vellum, and paper). Usually, binders would leave the spine exposed, but not always. Its versatility, simplicity, and durability made it the preferred binding for early Christian writings ensuring their rapid reproduction and diffusion. Moreover, it offers excellent creative freedom, it has the benefit of opening completely flat.

  • This paper was made on the first and original Fourdrinier Paper Machine, which launched the revolution allowing paper to become the cheap and plentiful product that we all use in our daily life. Faithfully restored by a group of enthusiasts, the machine is now part of a mill now run as a charity so its unique history can be preserved. Still modern in outlook, the mill now uses a range of recycled raw material for paper of great character and quality. History and goodness all rolled into one.
