Nothing but White handmade deckled edge cotton rag paper

Handmade white rag paper is a favorite in the wedding stationery market and a popular media with artisans because of its luxury feel and archival value. While PARWANApaper, our flag ship recycled handmade paper brand, remains popular as an alternative to cotton rag we have now branched out into the white cotton rag category to cater to customers who are specifically looking for high quality white rag papers.

Our quest to make premium quality white cotton rag paper got us looking for artisans who would make the best cotton rag deckled edge paper. Our search took us to India, where after working with several artisans, we have now teamed up with a superb group of paper makers in rural Chennai who work for us and make the most fabulous rag paper from recycled hosiery.

At C|C, our artisans make paper using 100% cotton rags. Cotton rags have longer fibres than linters which are the short fluffy fibres of the cotton seed often used in papermaking. The cotton rag we use comes from T-shirt cuttings, a reliable source of pure woven cotton. It is the fibre length of this raw material that gives C|C rag papers their exceptional strength and durability.

Pulped in large Hollander beaters, internally sized with neutral pH, C|C handmade papers are made sheet by sheet, not in a continuous roll. Cotton fibres in suspension in water are poured onto a paper mould which is a handheld wooden frame with a stainless-steel wire mesh draining surface.

The sheet is formed on the mould in a vat of water. On top of the mould is a removable frame called a deckle which holds the pulp in place. The process involves a very small amount of fibre and a lot of water. The characteristic deckle edges of the sheet of paper come from the slippage of pulp between the deckle and the mould. The mould is lifted from the vat and the sheet is laid or couched onto a woollen felt. Another felt is placed on top and the process is repeated. When a pile of sheets interleaved with felts has been made they are pressed in a hydraulic press to remove excess water. Rough surfaced papers retain the impression of the woollen felt.

Papers are loft dried. After drying, sheets are tub sized (surface sized) with gelatine which produces a hard, water-resistant surface. This is the traditional way of sizing paper for watercolour, allowing watercolour to be worked over the surface without penetrating the paper.

Our paper is perfect for screen printing, letterpress and appropriate for almost any use including pen and ink, drawing with coloured or graphite pencil, or light washes of water-colours The papers can be used with all painting and drawing media. The paper will print in the top feed area of a printer, however, we suggest samples be used for any testing. For painting in oils, they should be primed with gesso or acrylic primer.

As with all handmade items made from recycled and up cycled materials, please expect slight variation in size colour and texture
