Italian Papers

I am happy to offer you some wonderful imported Italian papers that I personally think are full of inspiration! They are made by three different companies: Bertini, Rossi, and Tassotti. All three use sulphite base stock for their traditional Florentine designs. In certain designs, powdered gold is even added during the final stage of manufacture, giving the papers an almost unbelievably rich glow. Archives of ancient papers have been purchased by these companies to preserve these centuries-old designs for artists to use. Many of the reproduced patterns date back to the Renaissance. These designs are wonderful in collage, perfect in cards and in bookbinding (acid-free), & great for any paper art project. I hope you'll enjoy these lovely papers and be inspired in new creative ways.

Each sheet is approximately 19 x 27".
Shipped rolled in a protective mailing tube.
- Sale: $4.50 per sheet.
