Shilpi Tools

March 30, 2009

Most of us involved in parchment crafting have used either the Pergamano or Parchcraft Australia tools. Some of the folks that have been parching for a long time may use the old Brazilian style tools, and if there were no tools available, made their own. On one of the lists that I am on for parchment crafting, a few of the ladies have been using Shilpi tools.


I was intrigued, as these ladies have nothing but good to say about these tools. Recently I bought the Shilpi embossing tools. I have to be honest here, they are wonderfully comfortable to hold, and the balls are glide smoothly over the vellum. Definitely a good buy!

More importantly, especially for those of us with a touch of arthritis in the fingers, it is the shape of the tool along with the soft rubber grip that is so comfortable, and my fingers don’t cramp and hurt as they do using the other brand tools. Believe me, that is saying a lot!  I will be adding their link to the side bar shortly.


This was definitely one of the best purchases I have made.

    I’ve recently started to do parchment craft ‘properly’. I had a couple of goes a few years ago but wanted to do a better job of it. Your blog has been very helpful to me – thank you.
