Description

Because our paper is handmade and cut by hand, A3 sizing may not be perfectly precise. It may vary in tone and texture and come with unique features including bits of recycled print and hemp fibres. We have left our A3 sheets with the raw deckled edge it develops as it is made. It gives it a lovely character!

Hemp Paper vs Tree Paper

Hemp paper has a rich history indeed and has been used by ancient cultures including the Chinese and Egyptians for many hundreds of years. Hemp fibre can be a far more sustainable means of producing paper than with wood fibres because:

  • Hemp is a much faster yield crop. Cannabis plants reach maturity in 18-32 weeks while a tree takes 20-80 years!
  • Hemp produces one of the strongest natural fibres in the world, allowing hemp paper to be recycled up to 8 times, compared to wood pulp paper which maxes out at 3 times.
  • Hemp fibres are resistant to decomposition and do not yellow with age.
  • Hemp has a higher concentration of cellulose than trees – that’s the fibrous part of the stem that gives it structure and allows it to stand directly upright to such a great height (2-4 metres!) A higher concentration of cellulose in paper pulp means it requires fewer chemicals for processing, which reduces the amount of harmful chemicals entering our local water supplies.
