Elements are made from natural earth friendly materials like rice and sugar without the use of harsh chemicals. They burn with virtually zero ash except for the natural sugar gum turning into caramel as it burns. Each sheet is watermarked with their proprietary crisscross watermark. This watermark helps prevent runs and allows for the smoothest and most even burn possible. Hold a sheet of Elements up to the light and you will see its beautiful watermark printed on the paper. Elements rolling papers are 100% windmill powered. Their production for these beautiful papers takes place in a small town called Alcoy, in the mountains north of Alicante Spain. Alcoy is known as the birthplace of rolling papers (circa 1700).
