Khadi Sunn Hemp Turkish Madder Paper
Traditional Islamic paper from North India made from sunn hemp fibre. Handmade on a chapri, a grass stem screen. Sheets are dried on a plaster wall and surface sized with wheat starch.
The colour is applied by brush. After colouring, the paper is burnished by rubbing on a curved block of wood with a smooth stone.
This paper is made for calligraphy and fine brush and pen work. In India it is used by the Jain community for hand written geneologies painted in gold.
