Re: source of tapa



> Hello!  Would anyone know the source of some plain white, or near white
tapa (also called kapa ) which is made from the inner bark fibers of
the white mulberry which are pounded into a sheet, rather than "Hollandered"
into pulp.  The people of Somoa, Maori, New Guinea and a few in Hawaii are
still making cloth like sheets of this, but I would like some which has
not already been  painted with ethnic designs.

Many thanks for any information available.

Also, there is a new paper place in N.Y.C. which specializes in
exotic papers - would anyone hav the name and address of this place ?

Thankyou !
