This is calfskin 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 calfskin vellum is paper-thin but almost indestructible with a super smooth surface.

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


Supplied in packs of 1, 3 or 10 with a mix of natural patinas; all extremely smooth surfaced and wonderful for producing art on. 


Uses include:

Calligraphy, illumination, botanical watercolour and digital inkjet printing (see below).
