Origamidō Handmade Paper - White Lustre (Medium)
Origamidō Sheet size: 40x50 cm (16"x20")
This paper has been made by Origamidō studio’s Michael LaFosse and Richard Alexander specifically for origami and it's close to perfection : "thin, strong, crisp, takes a crease and It isn't overly weakened by folding" (Robert J. Lang).
Michael LaFosse is a world-renowned artist in the field of origami. Author of numerous books with Richard Alexander, they have mastered the manufacture of paper. Designing an origami paper close to perfection, as thin as tissue paper, but extremely strong, with its pulp made from very long fibers. The paper has a neutral pH and the colors come from pigments specifically chosen, making this an archival quality paper.
Intended primarily for their own models, this paper occasionally has been available for sale in the past. But today, despite its outstanding reputation, Origamidō paper is rarely available and only sold at Origamidō studio near Boston.
Michael and Richard allows Origami Shop to occasionally sell a limited quantity of this amazing paper.
