Plant Fibres

Mulberry Bark
Bleached Mulberry bark, from the north of Thailand, is sometimes referred to as Kozo fibre or Kozo paper. The sheets look like thick scrim with several layers. You can pull the layers apart and soften the fibres in water to separate, and use them as strips of fibre or create holes and gaps in the wet fibres for great texture. Layer them with Angelina fibre for an interesting contrast. The holes are wonderful for adding all sorts of other little extras and the paper takes colour superbly.Easily manipulated and stretched when soaked in water. Great for stitching on, backgrounds, layers etc. Dyes beautifully.
