Amate Bark Paper from Mexico: Basket Weave

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.


Basket Weave is a new creation from our amate artisan friends! This beautiful sheet features amate bark strips in a random criss-cross pattern. The bark going one way is a solid color, and the bark going the other way is washed in metallic gold! You can use either side of these sheets to get a totally different look.
