This leaf is made from traditionally handmade paper that is derived from silk. Silk paper has a soft feel which is more like a fabric than a paper. The paper is created using silk fibres that are bound together to form a lustrous paper. This long and delicate fern leaf comes in two different designs and create a simple display in a vase, in a frame or just on a wall for an instant botanical effect. Add beautiful handmade flowers to them in a vase for an everlasting bouquet.
