This is one of my favourite bookmarks, which has been in my collection for more than 10 years. It is a handmade painted bookmark from Mexico. As you can see, it is a very beautiful and colourful bookmark ♥. It is one of my treasures.

The paper is a very special one. It is called "Papel Amate" (Amate Paper) and it is made by hand from the bark of three different trees: Amate, Jonote and a mulberry. The craftsmen use a millenary Mexican technique. I encourage you to search more information, for example this video, to see this amazing process.
