Sunn Hemp (from raw fibre)
Traditional Islamic paper from North India made from raw sunn hemp fibre. Handmade on a chapri, a grass stem screen, the impression of the screen is visible on the sheet as a laid pattern. Sheets are dried on a plaster wall and surface sized with wheat starch. The paper is burnished by rubbing on a curved block of wood with a smooth stone.
This paper is made for Khadi Papers by Mahomed Hussain Kagzi, perhaps the last surviving maker of traditional Islamic paper. The paper is used for calligraphy and fine brush and pen work.
You can buy just one sheet of any one paper but overall you must buy a minimum of 10 sheets selected from any of the papers in this category.
