The An-Jing Paper is based on the traditional Chinese Xuan paper. These papers are handmade from bast fibers, such as blue sandalwood, mulberry, hemp and dragon whisker grass. It is typically white and moth-resistant. The tradition of handmade paper began in Anhui Province, China in about 800 A.D. The Xuan paper from Jing Xian County of Anhui Province, has been hand-produced for over 1000 years. The An-Jing Papewr line consists of three varieties. Crumpled and Dyed has bright colours and is hand crinkled. Meteor Shower are delicate large papers. Rainfall is water drip, subtle marbled patterned paper.
