Shuen Paper (Xuan Paper) is the most popular paper in China among brush painters and calligraphers. It is the most sensitive of the rice papers, cheerfully displaying dynamic strokes and complex shade variations with translucent fluidity and original spontaneity.
We carry many variations of raw shuen paper, each with their own unique characteristics.
