Cotton Rag Paper

Fabulous Fancy Pants supplies beautiful handmade paper made of 100% cotton rag using post-industrial cotton textile remnants from India. Each piece of paper is handmade on an individual screen with beautiful, natural deckled edges. The color of the paper is a natural, unbleached soft-white but may occasionally have tiny speckles of random color from other fibers mixed in the hand making process.

As a calligrapher who works with a lot of inks, watercolors, and stains, I wanted to provide my customers with beautiful paper that is also sized to prevent feathering and bleeding. This paper has a wonderful feel and tooth to it, and many sizes are offered in a variety of thicknesses (150gsm, 250 gsm, and 300gsm). All thicknesses are perfect for letterpress as well as appropriate for almost any use, including pen and ink, drawing, colored or graphite pencils or light washes of watercolors. It will also work for mixed media. Both the 150gsm and 250gsm weights will print on the top feed area of my personal inkjet printer. However, I can not guarantee that your printer can handle them and suggest ordering a sample pack for a trial run.
