Xuan paper is named after its production location -- Xuancheng City near Anhui Province. It is a rare and special type of paper. Back in the Tang Dynasty, the paper was a tribute to the emperor. Even today, the paper enjoys great fame. Made with raw materials of sandal wood and bamboo pulp, Xuan paper is characterized by its pure white color, fine texture, softness, evenness, toughness, luster and strong absorption etc. That’s why Xuan paper is used in most Chinese calligraphy and painting works. The paper is also known for its features of steadfast color, resistance to decaying and damage by folding, and to aging and worms. It’s called "longevity paper for millennia".
