We offer a variety of custom handmade papers at Tut neyar. The paper is made from all natural long fibers, namely – kozo (the Japanese name for "paper mulberry" or "Tut Neyar" in Hebrew), abaca, cotton, hemp, kenaf and flax. Occasionally we use exotic fibers such as oat straw, sugar cane, gampi, iris leaves, jeans, and others.
Our paper can be made to order in many weights and finishes; they can also be tinted any color and sized according to any specifications. Each sheet is individually made, using a traditional mold and deckle, therefor each sheet has deckle (natural) edges on all sides (unless asked to be cut to size ). The materials and techniques used, ensure the longevity and the strength of the papers.
Papers for writing or printing
Years of experience have taught us how to create and ensure high quality paper for writing and/or printing. Printing can be done in any print shop or at home using an inkjet or laser printer
Tut-Neyar paper and envelopes are ideal for wedding or other special invitations. The paper can be a light or beige natural color, or dyed to a rainbow of colors. The addition of seasonal flower petals, leaves, silk threads and more, creates a unique effect.
We also sell stationery sets consisting of five sheets and five matching envelopes that makes an elegant gift.
Please specify with or without flower petals, beige or dyed paper $10 .
Paper for Lampshades
These papers made from kozo fiber in the oriental style, are naturally translucent and when used to cover a light bulb, create a beautiful and warm light. The paper can also be used for shoji screens, between window panes or as a divider. The paper is off white or dyed, flat pressed or wrinkled. Wrinkled paper is easier to work with on round objects, and gives a special effect when lit from behind.
* These three special size papers are cast using a Nepalese technique and are not perfectly even throughout. They should be used when special sizes or effects are needed.
When ordering please specify flat or wrinkled, natural or dyed. Inclusions such as seasonal flower petals, golden oats, silk threads, skeletal leaves, bits of bark, ferns and green leaves, confetti, sparkles or any other flat and flexible objects can be added to the paper.
We make special thin gampi paper for colle printing (application of a thin sheet over a thicker cotton-rag backing sheet). When printed damp, superb details can be attained. Available in beige or earth colors.

Thin paper for colle
For artistic use, we make paper from carefully prepared cotton rag, flax and hemp fibers. All paper is internally sized according to its use, e.g. calligraphy, print making, water color, book paper, etc. The paper is white unless otherwise specified.
Print making paper is slightly softer than other paper, and is lightly sized internally. This allows the paper to accept ink and create a rich image.
Paper is available in two surface finishes – smooth, rough.
Paper size is 50x70 cm
Archival conservation paper

* Weight of paper is in grams per square meter
We also make book paper for book restorers with a traditional laid mold, in an effort to match our paper with the original paper.
Using Japanese fibers and techniques we have developed very exquisite laminated paper with special designs. The result is a thin paper that can be framed or used as an illuminated picture.

Using an ancient Nepalese technique, we make large sheets, incorporating long fibers, twigs, straw and other natural objects, to create unique paper for wall hangings.

We have developed special paper for ketubah (wedding contract) with a design around the paper made from real flowers. The paper is sized to enable writing or printing on it. We collaborate with calligraphers who can write any text on the paper, or we can send it blank and let you do the writing or printing.
We collaborate with paper-cutting artists who use our fine paper to create delicate paper cuts with Judaica motifs. All the designs are cut by hand and some are also hand painted. The paper-cut can be accompanied by any text. Exact price will be determined after agreeing on design.
For general idea on prices(for 35x50 cm paper):
Decorated blank ketubah - $20-50. some flora patterns
Hand written ketubah - $ 125-300.

We designed our paper mill to be as flexible as possible and strive hard to meet any request.
