Parchment - Vellum

Parchment has been made for centuries and is usually made of goat, calf, sheep or cow skin. The term vellum, derived from the French word vèlin, refers to a parchment made of calfskin. The smooth and durable material is extremely diverse and contributes to the distinctiveness of each piece. Its coloration varies from ivories, yellows, and browns, to rich white tones achieved by bleaching the vellum. Seams are left visible, lending to the appeal of each piece. We do apply a lacquered finish, which protects the surface against cracking and stains. The lacquered can be applied in a matte or lustré finish.
