Chinese painting exercise paper

Yes, this is hand towel as you find in gas station and public toilet!
This is the paper my students and I use for exercise Chinese painting strokes. This paper is strong and absorbant. It reacts very similar to ink as rice paper. It's cheap, you dare to mess around with it and really feel free, no guilt.
When my students get comfortable and confident with their hand control, they start to use rice paper.

Where do you and your students purchase it? I have been looking around quite a bit lately and can not find it anywhere. I live in northeastern, PA.
