I made this beautiful handmade paper using Dracena and New Zealand
Flax (Phormium tenax). Both have wonderful long fibers in the leaves
and stems and are ideal for handpapermaking. Both kinds of paper
have some cotton fibers mixed in as well.
There are 3 sheets of Dracena and 2 sheets of flax (the chocolate
brown papers).

Each Sheet is highly textured and somewhat wavy.
They've been lightly internally sized, but will still act more like a waterleaf (unsized)
Use them for book covers, textured sketchbook pages, collage material and
printmaking. When used for printmaking, lightly mist the paper and place between
blotters (I use an old phone book to soak up excess water-If the paper is too wet, it will
stick to the printing plate).

Each sheet has deckle (feathered) edges made up of the plant fibers.
These add beauty and interest to the sheet.
The sheets are all approximately 7 inches by 9 inches and some are thicker than
Your paper will be carefully packed and shipped first class mail with delivery
