The idea of making paper without wood is hard to imagine, but Eco-Friendly Papers innovatively uses cotton rags and natural flowers to create their elegant papers. Committed to preserving nature and supporting local craftsmen, all products are handmade by local craftsman in India. The papers are 22” x 30” and come in various colors and designs.  The floral papers are especially beautiful! The Maple Leaf Imprint paper is one of our faves. This Indian company donates 1% of the money made from international orders to a girl’s orphanage in Jaipur City, India.
