How We Make Parchment
Parchment is untanned animal hide that has been dried under tension. It makes an excellent writing surface and has been used for writing since long before the advent of paper. Many well-known historical documents are written on parchment — and some of those are reproduced by Pergamena. Parchment is more durable and long-lasting than paper, and the intrinsic uniqueness of each skin makes it a fascinating material for many applications.
At Pergamena, our production methods are based on years of research, in addition to an inherent talent for working with skins, and our own creative ingenuity. We are continually developing new ideas to create the most useful, highest quality product.
