Tessellations is a very modern, abstract form of origami. It combines twist folds such that the result constitutes a complex repeating pattern. Elephant Hide or Wyndstone Marble is a german bookbinders paper and perfect for the high demands on paper for tessellations. It is water resistant, smooth and very durable and has a high resistance to tearing.

For most tessellations a hexagon is the basis. The hexagon paper offered here has also perfect dimensions for a 32 sub grid. This is a good size to start from, especially for beginners or early intermediates.

To venture into this abstract form of origami i highly recommend the book "origami tessellations" by Eric Gjerde.

I regularly cut and paint larger sheets of elephant hide into hexagons. In a custom order i can fit both colour and size to your specific needs.

For some colours i can also offer discounts and bulk prices. Just contact me for a quote.

Because the paper is quite thick (90-110 g/m²) i recommend to use a bonefolder.
