European Sefer Torah
Complete Sefer Torah, written in Hebrew Script on animal skin, each letter is handwritten. A scribe writes with a quill made from the feather of a fowl and uses ink specially prepared for the task. The parchment used for a sefer Torah and tefilin and mezuzot is also specially prepared and is derived from the hide of an animal that is kosher. The hide undergoes a process of flattening, thinning and bleaching to turn it into usable white parchment. There have been many instances of deerskin being used to make the parchment and therefore those sifrei Torah have a brownish background for the black lettering of the words of the Torah itself.
