Nightcloud Papers

Handmade Paper from Amandola, Marche

NightCloud Paper MillKatarina and NatanWe first met Catharina Sonn Kaaren and Natan Kaaren
by the end of 2006. They live and work in Amandola, Marche, Italy,

Their handmade paper show a wonderful variety of different shapes,
surfaces and fibers.
Here is just one example, patterns kind of "printed" into the paper.
Onto a first layer of white fibers, a second darker layer is fit, into which
by means of stencils various patterns can be worked.
This type of paper as well can wonderfully be used for lampshades.
