Marble Paper Designs with Custom Framing

The art of marbling paper dates back to 11th century Turkey, where it was known as Ebru and used in bookbinding. Today it is used as an embellishment for fine books, documents and custom framing.

Marble paper is made by floating colors on the surface of a liquid solution called Size, and laying paper on top to absorb the colors. The swirls are created with rakes to make marble or stone-like patterns. Each design is entirely original.
