Elephant Hide paper is quite durable, may be sharply creased or folded repeatedly without cracking or bunching, has a consistent texture, little to no bias, and responds well to wet-folding without warping or buckling.
Elephant Hide paper is favored for tesselation or large origami projects although its main use is in bookbinding. The paper has a smooth, lustrous surface that is durable and wonderful for origami. The paper is the same color on both sides (there is no reverse side).
