Jesse Meyer, founder of Pergamena, the parchment production extension of his family’s centuries-old tanning and leather business, gave a fascinating talk on the Story of Vellum. Check out their web site at for history, process and product information. TV’s Mike Rowe brought his Dirty Jobs crew to Pergamena for not one but 2 episodes, see YouTube.
