About this Original Tips
What are Original Tips? RAW Original Tips are meticulously crafted from naturally unrefined long fibers using an original type Fourdrinier paper machine – we’ve spared no expense. RAW Original Tips roll up smooth and have enough structural integrity to maintain their shape and rigidity even when wet. We carefully lay out and cut the paper properly with the grain so they roll smoothly (instead of squaring as many other tips from inferior companies do). Who is RAW? Early 1600’s-1700’s cigarette paper was supplied in large sheets known as “rolling paper” where smokers would have to hand-cut sections from this paper in order to use it. This all changed, however, when Father Jaime Villanueva Estingo invented the first rolling paper booklet circa 1800 in Jativa, Spain (just outside of Alcoy). RAW Paper is proudly from the Alcoy region of Spain and is made footsteps from where the first rolling papers were ever made.
