Mitsumata pulp. 500 gram pack. Acid free.
Mitsumata pulp is 100% pure bast fibre from the inner bark of Argeli (edgewortia papyfera). This is a native plant which grows above 2500 meters in the Himalayan forests. This fibre is a renewable resource. Plants are cropped above ground level and can be reharvested after 3-4 years. This fibre has been used in Himalayan papermaking for well over a thousand years. Mitsumata is the more widely known Japanese name for fibre.
Mitsumata fibre can be used in Western and Asian styles of papermaking. Traditionally it is used for making a soft, light weight, light toned paper for woodcut printing.
