Handmade by the Otomi artisans of Mexico, this beautiful amate paper is still created using the same methods that their Mesoamerican ancestors used 3000 years ago. Boiled and pounded from the bark of amate “wild fig” tree, xalama, jonote and mulberry trees, this acid free paper is a wonderful choice for a multitude of fine art uses. This particular lace sheet is surrounded with a handmade border, making it a finished piece of art as is! Due to the use of natural bark and the handmade process, each sheet is unique and will vary in shade, color, weight and pattern. Size is approximate, due to the deckle edges and drying process.
