Identifying Fibrous window screen replacement

Hello,

I have a custom window cover that is using a window screen made out of some paper fiber. The screen is light filtering, but you can't see through it. I had to ruin it while taking it off to caulk the windows behind it (previous owner never caulked the windows) because the previous owner used foam sticky tape to create a tight seal between the window frame and screen cover. That foam sticky tape made it impossible to pull the cover off without putting a hole in the paper fiber.

Pics attached. Any help would be appreciated in identifying at least what material this could be and where I can get it from. Searching for all different terms of window cover, film, screen, mesh, etc., just yields the usual window products.

Thanks in advance.

That looks like a hand made or specialized decorative paper. You won't find it on the shelf in any home center. Try searching for hand made or decorative papers. There are many options in different colors, patterns and weights. Many types can be attached to your frame then wetted and as it dries will draw tight for a nice looking installation.

Thanks for the response.

I think I found something very close, but searching for Natural paper or even lampshade paper yielded some results.

Appreciate you pointing me in the right direction.
