Our journals and photo albums are filled with cotton paper.  The paper has a tactile quality that cannot be replicated by machine.  This beautiful handmade paper is created from pieces of recycled cotton rag.  We use the off-cuts discarded by the garment industry to create the paper using in an ancient process that has passed down through the generations. Cotton paper has the additional benefit of being tree-free as no wood pulp is used.

The process behind the paper making involves many different stages, from mixing the pulp to layering it between sheets of muslin, and finally hanging it out to dry on washing lines. The artisans who create each sheet are well practiced with the process.
