Curtin Springs Paper.

Native Grasses paper. Northern Territory Australia

We harvest our native grasses by hand; using a pair of secateurs, a hessian sack and our knowledge of the Curtin Springs landscape.
Each type of grass creates a different texture and feel in the paper, whether it be spinifex, oat grass, woollybutt, kangaroo or kerosene grass. The different seasons also produce differences in the papers.    MORE
