YAK Handmade Papers are handcrafted in our workshop located in Alborz, IRAN. We use a variety of long fibers including linen, cotton, sugar cane, and etc. No synthetic fiber, rags or recycled paper is used. The fiber is mixed with pure water of almost neutral PH and beaten to a pulp in our beater. We form the sheets one by one using traditional mold and deckle and each complete sheet has 4 deckle edges on all sides. Each newly formed sheet is couched onto a felt, and the post of wet papers is pressed in a 100-Ton hydraulic press and restraint dried. We guarantee the longevity and strength of our papers from view point of the material and techniques used.
All our paper is ideal for:
– painting (watercolor, acrylic, pastel, ink, etc.)
– letterpress printing
– calligraphy (burnished with polished agate stone)
and anything for which handcrafted papers may be desired.
