HAND BATIKED PREMIUM PAPER - GALAXY - ROSE X 1 pc
The beautiful handmade cotton paper is printed with wax resist dyeing - an ancient form and skill. The paper is dipped into a wax form bath, scrunched into a ball where the colour penetrates through the cracks in the wax giving the beautiful cracked and textured affect.
The cotton its printed on is really absorbent and the dye soaks through to both sides of the paper making it usable on either side.
1 sheet measures 50cm x 76xm and is approx. 100 - 120 gsm thick

Rani, Paper Mirchis founder is a qualified textile designer with a love for wrapping and ancient textile printing techniques such as block printing and tie dye.

Paper Mirchi work closely with small family run units in India. Paper making is an ancient skill in India, they use old cotton rags and textiles which are chopped, pulped and dyed before been placed over a mesh screen where the fibres bond together to form the paper. The water is then squeezed out and its hung to dry before being printed with their beautiful, fabulous prints.
