Tut Neyar is the Hebrew name of a Mulberry plant paper. Izhar and Timna Neumann make striking paper at their establishment, Tut Neyar. This is not your ordinary paper mill but a small work/shop.
You can choose from a variety of hand-pressed paper, which can be used for Ketubot, wedding invitations, greeting cards etc., as well as a selection of lampshades sporting hand made paper.
While there is nothing distinctly Israeli about the paper or the process by which it is made, it is worth seeing nonetheless. Most of the paper includes pressed wild flowers, which vary according to the season. Papers are available in a variety of thickness for different uses (ask to see the papers which are on display).
Paper making demonstrations and workshops are available by prior arrangement (in English, Hebrew and Japanese). These are best conducted in good weather.
Tut Neyar is located in the courtyard of 39 Hameysdim Street.
