The creation of the paper is fascinating.

 

In the 17th century, the bookbinder of Louis the 13th, King of France had invented a method to produce a paper looking like marble, also called “papier à cuve”. This marbleized paper was widely used until the end of the 19th century, in particular for bookbinding.  The description of the technique’s details to produce marbleized paper can be found in manuals dating back to 1600.

 

Today in Florence, Italy, Il Papiro is a company producing hand decorated (laid) paper using traditional Italian techniques and in particular, the marbleizing of paper.

 

In 1976, Francesco Gianini and Gianni Parenti, two Florentine natives and handicraft lovers, retrieved the use of this ancient technique and created “Il Papiro” which produces items such as bound diaries, journals, desk accessories, boxes and papers. 

Watching the creation of marbled paper is both captivating and fascinating.  First, a base made from a gelatin solution prepared with seaweeds has to be produced. Next, on the surface of this base, the colors are dropped and sprayed and then a comb-shaped tool is very carefully passed through it to obtain the desired design.  Finally, the most difficult part:  a sheet of paper is delicately laid on this colored gelatin base and gently pulled off. The result: the colors adhere to and completely cover the paper! Please view the process of making these papers at the following links below.

These beautiful decorative patterns on paper were known as Chiyogami in Japan and are silkscreened onto handmade sheets of paper.  They are more popularly known as Yuzen in the United States.  Originally, Chiyogami designs were developed in the Edo period as woodblock prints by papermakers for use as accessories in the house to enliven the interiors. They were based on the bright kimono textiles which the papermakers from the countryside saw on the fashionable wealthier ladies in the larger cities, especially in Kyoto, where the area known as Yuzen had become famous for its sophisticated techniques for dyeing cloth.

Chiyogami was meant to be cut into pieces and made into paper dolls or 
posted on tea tins or small paper boxes.

 

The pen comes with a Schmidt refill.  The pens accept Parker style refills, which are available in any fine office supply store.
