I recently bought the New Leaf Farm Fiber paper made from Banana fibers. It is a very nice paper. It’s thin and mostly smooth, with just a few raised fibers here and there. It has a mostly brown tone to it, with surprising splashes of tiny blue dots throughout. The natural pattern is very appealing; no two pages are exactly the same. I am making product tags from this paper, and it is just the touch I was needing for the “earthy” feel I like to convey. They also have envelopes to match which are also very nice.

Cool – it’s great to hear opinions from people who have used it. I’m especially impressed that it works well for papercrafts – I think I’ll order some myself now 🙂
