I'm not sure how I've gotten into the habit of using either unryu or banana paper as the base for my little note card abstracts, but I have. I guess I just like it! I'm intrigued by the plant fibers that run through it and the way the edges get all fuzzy when you rip it. That's the best part about these Thai papers, ripping them. Their fibrous edges make them appear even more beautiful when you do that.
