Amate Bark Paper from Mexico: Solar Circle

This gorgeous paper comes to us from a Mexico, where skilled artisans have been producing amate paper for centuries. The culture of amate paper dates back to pre-Columbian Meso-American times.

Amate paper looks amazing if you simply frame a sheet as ready made artwork. Also terrific for bookmaking arts, collage, multimedia artwork, paper sculpture, lampshades, and more.


This design was a collaboration between the Mexican artisans who make the paper and David Hoffend, the paper manager and buyer at Art Supply. We are very excited to offer you this special pattern!
