Zanders Elephant Hide Ivory 70x100cm
Elephant Hide paper is quite durable, may be sharply creased or folded repeatedly without cracking or bunching, has a consistent texture, little to no bias, and responds well to wet-folding without warping or buckling.
Elephant Hide paper is favored for tesselation or large origami projects although its main use is in bookbinding. The paper has a smooth, lustrous surface that is durable and wonderful for origami. The paper is the same color on both sides (there is no reverse side).
Elephant Hide paper has a weight of 110g. For reference purposes: 9g is extremely lightweight tissue, effectively transparent; 45g is a heavy tissue or very lightweight text weight paper, usually somewhat translucent; 70g is approximate weight of Western bond paper, usually opaque (20lb multi-purpose bond is 75g); 90g is heavy text weight stock, flexible enough for invitation folds but difficult for origami; 120g is average cardstock, opaque.
