Decorative Papers (Artisan Papers)
Elephant hide paper Zanders writes: "Elephant Hide paper is an extraordinary product combining timeless beauty with uncommon practicality. The manufacturing process is unique: the paper is made in accordance with a ‘very old recipe.’ It runs, ever so slowly, on machinery made especially for this product. The characteristic veining varies sheet to sheet, as do the shape and caliper, making the resulting product as close to ‘hand-made’ as possible, with a striking resemblance to marble. Yet, owing to a special surface treatment, the paper has a high degree of resistance to scratching, scuffing and grease stains, and can be wiped with a damp cloth."   Usages include; origami paper, origami wet folding, book binding, book covers, documents, certificates, packaging, menus, and greeting cards, and wet folding origami models, laser printable, sophisticated paper arts, collage, scrap booking, sculptures, mixed media
