Binding Calf Parchment
Parchment as a binding material has been around for thousands of years. Its density, flexibility and toughness give it a surprising strength. For a material that is only as thick as a few sheets of paper, it is remarkable in its ability to withstand wear and maintain its flexibility as a cover and hinge material. It can also be dyed and tooled to produce stunning results. We pride ourselves on offering parchments in keeping with historical and traditional standards, as well as some unorthodox offerings. This gives us a range of parchments that appeals to conservators and modern book artists alike that you will find nowhere else.
