Jesse Meyer founded Pergamena Parchment back in 1999. Coming from a family of leather manufacturers, stretching back at least 450 years, Mr. Meyer created the first new North American commercial parchment manufacturer in generations. Mr. Meyer has been featured on the Discovery Channel’s Dirty Jobs. . . twice. Through trial and error, he has rediscovered and recreated the process of making parchment for numerous applications, such as calligraphy, printing, and interior design, which he supplies to designers like Ellen Sigunick for interior panels and furniture design.
