Thailand has been producing papers for centuries. It was often a family craft with skills passed down from generation to generation. Thai papers are noted for their distinctive long, narrow format that related back to the traditional manuscripts used to record Buddhist texts.
Thailand's paper industry has grown quite rapidly in the past decade. The factories in northern Thailand offer both machinemade and handmade decorative papers, revolutionizing the Asian paper market by supplying a vast array of reasonably priced, traditional oriental styles that can be used in many different creative processes.
