"Purple Moon" brand, Single ply, raw Xuan(shuan) paper is handmade in Jing County, Anhui Province, where the best Chinese Xuan paper is produced. In pure white and firm texture, this particular type of Xuan paper is known as Yu-Ban or "jade-plaque." When light ink is applied on it, the ink would get rich tones, kept fresh but not turning gray; when watercolors are applied, it would show mellowness but not stiff; smear smoothly, with good absorbent capability. It is good for both calligraphy and painting, perfect for painting flower and birds, figures, animals and landscape painting. I have included it in the student pack for both beginning and advanced sumi-e students to try and see what authentic Chinese Xuan paper is.
