Papel Amate, or Bark Paper, is a form of traditional Mexican paper with pre-Hispanic origins.  Traditional bark paper was considered a specialty of the village shaman and was used for special rituals.  The Nahua and Otomi tribes eventually began using bark paper as a canvas for traditional paintings. Typically the Otomi of Puebla painstakingly craft the paper out of fig tree or mulberry tree bark and then sell it to the Nahua of Guerrero for painting.  LaFuente.com
