Amate paper is an ancient back paper first produced by the Aztec and Mayan civilizations during pre-contact times. Traditionally used for ceremonial papercuts and to make codices, Amate paper became nearly extinct in the mid-1800's. Today, our Amate papers are made in San Pueblito, Puebla, Mexico by third generation Otomi papermakers using the bark from the Jonote tree. It has a unique texture and a thickness that makes it useful for book covers and other heavier applications. Weight & size varies slightly by each handmade sheet.
