It has World Heritage status, is characterised by its softness, resistance, capacity to absorb water and ink, and by its ability to be folded multiple times without tearing. Dragon Art offers you a high quality range of raw Xuan paper: Mulberry bark. Artisans in a traditional Beijing workshop fabricated it. The professional artisans make it using mulberry bark as the basis, with bamboo, and herbaceous wild plants. Following the traditional techniques, they make them by hand. The result is a raw immaculately white Xuan paper showing marks and lines of the natural ingredients used in its making. It is very smooth and soft, yet at the same time strong and flexible.

It is perfect for the creations with Chinese ink. ¨Bark of mulberry tree: Extra thick high quality raw Xuan paper¨ is a product with great quality and it will surely bring you a beautiful artistic experience.
