Paper Connection's Gampi Collection is made from 100% Philippine gampi, a lustrous, silky fiber native to Japan and other parts of Asia. Both in its sheet form or in the raw fiber form, gampi by its natural make-up reacts to ink as if it had sizing on it. In other words, it holds ink on its crisp, smooth surface beautifully. At Paper Connection, we call it the "queen of printmaking".
Measures 38 inches wide, by 10 meters long, ~33g/m².
*Also available in sheets! see gampi collection.
