These French Ribbons prints are printed from a hand-carved wooden block. Then, one by one, each are painted either in this full color version, or in a monochromatic blue version. They're based on antique French domino papers, or "papiers dominotés", which were used to cover the outside of books before binding. This one was influenced by a paper originally created in 1790, and may have also been used as a book endpaper, or wallpaper.
These are printed on 100% cotton paper from Khadi Papers in India, from recycled garment industry offcuts. Read more about our materials.
