This is boar skin vellum (aka parchment). It's an animal leather product, not vegan friendly, sorry.

Vellum/parchment is an ancient material. It was used thousands of years ago as a writing and drawing surface for letters, maps, bibles (with the wonderful illuminations) and legal documents.

The method of making it has largely stayed the same. This boar skin vellum is paper-thin but almost indestructible with a super smooth surface. It has a slightly different surface to the calfskin, it shows more pores but is still extremely smooth. 

It is produced in Brazil by a family of vellum makers who have been making vellum parchment for over 100 years.

Supplied in single sheets in a white colour; more textured than goat or calf, wonderful for producing art on. 

Uses include:

Calligraphy, illumination, botanical watercolour, digital inkjet printing and even traditional letterpress.
