paper textile

Today, an amazing post about shifu paper from Stephen Szczepanek on his Sri Threads blog.  As a former papermaker, I am stunned never to have heard of this before.  And Stephen offers such a detailed description and photos of the process.  Bravo!

    this was a great post, i agree. a blog friend sent me a small square of shifu a while back and that is how i knew about it.

    yes, and now I just ache to get my hands on some, just to feel it. I’ve been wanting to get down to Brooklyn to visit Stephen’s gallery/shop/apartment, but still haven’t managed.
