Handmade Paper

I make my handmade paper from recycled Braille paper (for high quality 100% cotton white pulp), blended cotton fabric pulp (from blue jeans and t-shirts), and recycled colored office papers. To these I add a variety of native plant materials: grass, corn husk, leaves of daffodil, iris, day lily, blossoms of iris and dahlia, fruits or or vegetative parts from berries, onions, tomatoes, rhubarb, even pumpkins. Some of these additions provide cellulose, some interesting textures, others color. Some colors and plant combinations are seasonal, and may not be available year 'round.

I sell paper in a variety of forms:
