brown tailoring paper
Posted 11 March 2011 - 12:31 AM
For "throw away" drafting I use kraft paper/ parcel paper. Mine is 60gm so it's a bit light for storing hanging up but if I have a show that I keep the patterns for, it is strong enough to roll safely or fold. I don't have storage at home for millions of patterns that may never be used again (yet).
Morplan sell slightly heavier 70gsm paper.

They ship worldwide and they'll send you Samples. You will get the pricelist with a small samplebook (just small snips and only 10 pieces auf of their collection but they will send you DINA 5 samples when you specify what you are interested in.
They've got brown and white paper, transparent paper, Plotter paper, cardboard, acetate and so on in different weights and widths. They can even produce paper for your very special needs.
I personally tried them out because I was annoyed by the size of my paper I used before. Now I've got one 150cm in width, 120g/m2 and I am in Heaven! If that is too exaggerated for you, the've got other dimensions as well. They sell to the industry as well as to small designers and tailors.

I changed my mind long time ago. I use brown paper because you can chalk along on the fabric.

Personally I usually use the brown packing paper sold at the dollar store. The width can be difficult though I tend to buy up all the 1.5m rolls when they come in.
Brown paper is also easier to keep clean.
