Khadi Bhutanese Paper Superfine JDK
JDK is an artists’ handmade paper made from the inner bark or bast fibre of de-kar. De-kar has a lighter colour and has a superfine silk like quality. It is a native plant of the Himalayan foothills, sustainable and a renewable resource. Plants are cropped above ground level and can be reharvested after 3-4 years. The paper is made on a laid mould of split bamboo which gives a laid pattern to the sheet. The paper is couched and dried on a mud wall.
