Gampi Smooth MM


Artists who need a smooth but absorbent surface for printmaking, calligraphy, collage, and drawing tend to favour papers made from Gampi fibres.

It has a natural sizing, restricting the amount of bleed when written or painted on. And as the name implies, this paper has a lovely, smooth surface and the characteristic gampi sheen. It has an attractive warm tone and small bits of darker bark called chiri, giving it extra character and an organic look.
