We are excited about our new bleached jute pulp in sheet form from Spain. We normally think of jute in the context of scratchy burlap bags and coarse rope. But when this jute is beaten in the Hollander for eight hours, the resulting paper is wonderfully translucent, crisp, and uniform. It has become our new favorite.

Description »

The jute plant, botanically known as Corchorus capsularis, has a cylindrical stalk and grows as tall as ten feet. After harvesting, the stalks are retted until the bast fiber can be stripped from the stalks. 

Jute is in sheet form and sold by the pound. Each sheet measures 24.5" x 31" and weighs about .85 lbs. However we may cut sheets to fit more easily into boxes. Jute can be processed very easily in a kitchen blender or other form of mixer if a Hollander beater is unavailable.
