I ran across this at an elegant shop called europeanpaper.com They have some very nice stationery, but this one is a curiosity. I wonder if it is FP Friendly? Certainly it is elephant friendly...the brand name is "PooPoo".

I have a small pad here at home and it's thick and fuzzy and feathers. But there may be some variations?

I've got some elephant dung paper (not sure if it's the same stuff as in the link). It's bumpy, scratchy and pretty horrible to write on with a fountain pen. A biro might be able to beat it into submission but I haven't bothered to try.

I haven't tried it, so I could be very wrong, but it looks like the sort of colorful, pretty handmade paper that gives all fountain pens everywhere nightmares. Fibrous, nib-clogging nightmares.

Their customer service replied that the texture is definitely not ideal for fountain pens. Best as a gift to environmentally tuned, ballpoint using friends who'd like to help the elephants and their people.

Further investigation also revealed Roo Poo paper is an alternate choice. I suppose kangaroos can process a respectable amount of plant fiber as well...
