This is a gorgeous Japanese decorative paper. It looks lacy and delicate, but it’s surprisingly strong. Although handmade Ogura Lace paper does exist, this particular paper is machine made- which makes it an affordable choice for artists, artisans and crafters. This Ogura Lace Paper is made in Japan of 100% Manila Hemp. To form its distinctive lace pattern, the long, heavy fibers are separated by water falling on the newly-formed sheets to create holes within the paper. 108 gsm, no deckles. Sold in sheets measuring 21 inches by 31 inches. The color shown in the photo here is “Plum”. Blush Pink, Lilac Purple, Natural / Off White, Navy Blue, Spring Green, and Olive Green are also available.
