Classic Kitakata Wide Roll Japanese Paper
This smooth and absorbent Japanese Classic Kitakata washi paper is a favorite of printmakers and bookbinders. It has a lightly flecked surface and a lovely warm tone that looks especially lovely when colour is applied. Classic Kitakata is great for all printmaking applications as well as drawing.
Papers made with Salago (Philippine gampi) make an affordable option for someone wanting to explore the gampi for the first time. Classic Kitakata is a pure salago, machine-made paper, that is lightly sized. A warm-toned paper with great consistency, it is an excellent choice for editioning any kind of print, including mokuhanga. It has a little more texture than one would expect from a true gampi washi. This makes it a beautiful choice for drawing with almost any media. Another great feature is that Classic Kitakata is available both in sheets and rolls.
