Welcome to Mitnan Studio
Mitnan Studio is a home based papermaking studio in southern Israel named after the indigenous desert shrub that yields strong translucent paper. The Studio offers unique handmade paper art, stationary and exquisite handmade papers for artists such as calligraphers, printers, illustrators and collectors of beauty.
The Mitnan repertoire includes papers made from the mitnan plant, authentic paper made from locally grown cotton, flax paper, paper in a variety of textures and rag paper made from 100% cotton fabric.
Mitnan handmade papers are endowed with a sensual touch to their overall appearance due to the natural ingredients that are used in their process of becoming papers. Dyed with natural earth pigments, Mitnan Papers radiate and resonate the solemn beauty and hues of the desert regions: creamy white from the Arava, pale greenish-blue from Mitzpe-Ramon , rustic orange from the Mamshit Wadi, golden yellows from Jerusalem’s Judean mountains and chocolate browns from Eilat’s mountainous landscape.
Mitnan Papers and handmade notebooks are now available at The Melahot Center, Ein Karem, Jerusalem.
Mitnan papermaking is an adventurous exploration
into the poetic expressions of Paper
It is an act of love
