Raw rolling papers are one of our best selling product here at sunflower Pipes and Raw tips are the most common crutches purchased at our shop with variety of different papers.
Most Raw products (Mainly their rolling papers) are made in Alcoy, Spain. But Raw Perforated Tips are made in China on an antique paper machine. Raw wanted to produce thick quality tipping papers so they traveled an old paper mill in Northern China where they had and still used their original Fourdrinier. These old machines are super rare and hardly in use and this was the only location they could find to produce the special long-fiber paper used to create Raw Tips.
Most modern paper mill make paper from small structure cellulose as oppose to the original back in the day method of using fiber. Being made of fiber and not just boiled cellulose tipping paper will perform much better. This method prevents the paper from dissolving, helps it keep its shape in your mouth, and allows smooth rolling! There are only a few original Fourdrinier paper machines left in existence because they are antiques and very expensive to operate. Raw was lucky to find this old mill, it’s the only one in the world that can produce RAW tips to their specifications.
