The Buckskin Amate Bark is handmade in Mexico by the Otomi Indians as it was in the 1300's. The bark comes from downed Fig and Mulberry trees. It is collected, washed in stream water, and boiled in lime water until the fiber is pliable, then beaten and sun-dried. Amate is acid-free and its uses include collage, bookbinding, box making, wall covering, and painting.
