Amate is a paper made from the bark of the Jonote Tree in San Pablito, Puebla, Mexico, by a family of Otomi papermakers who have been making paper for three generations. The bark is pounded by hand with a special stone, and the bark grows back into the tree making it eco-friendly.
It has a unique texture and a thickness that makes it useful for book covers and other heavier applications. It can also be used for painting, drawing, box making, printmaking, and digital printing.
Weight and size varies slightly by each handmade sheet! Color varies by batch!
