  • Furniture Deer

    As a surface material, parchment and vellum convey subtleness and solidity less like leather and more like stone thanks to their crisp edges and depth of character.  As an applied panel material, parchment can be used as cabinet doors, desk and table tops, and headboards, not to mention wall panels in room interiors.  Its sometimes translucency makes it a class material for lampshades, light sconces, and room screens.  Contact us to learn about our beautiful and unique range of parchments and ask us how we can advise you on the right material to make your parchment paneling or lighting project unforgettable.  We also offer manufacturing capabilities if you are looking for assistance with furniture or interior projects.

  • Binding Deer

    Parchment as a binding material has been around for thousands of years.  Its density, flexibility and toughness give it a surprising strength.  For a material that is only as thick as a few sheets of paper, it is remarkable in its ability to withstand wear and maintain its flexibility as a cover and hinge material.  It can also be dyed and tooled to produce stunning results.  We pride ourselves on offering parchments in keeping with historical and traditional standards, as well as some unorthodox offerings.  This gives us a range of parchments that appeals to conservators and modern book artists alike that you will find nowhere else.

  • Calligraphy Deer

    Our calligraphy parchment has been hand-prepared for writing on one side.  It is a durable medium for illuminations and calligraphy that can handle corrections well.  If kept at a stable temperature and humidity it can last indefinitely, as evidenced by the large trove of parchment manuscripts still with us.  Crisp pen lines, luminescent illustrations, and deep letterpress impressions one can feel make it a truly unique material for nearly any media.

  • Deer Parchment Cut Sheets

    Deerskin is rich, sturdy, and textured - characteristics that reflect the scars, holes, and bruising that the animal acquires in the wild.  For those projects that don't require a whole skin, we offer cut sheets with a calligraphy-ready finish on one or both sides, or with a standard unfinished surface. Deerskins come in natural color only.
