its qualities (opacity, bulk, softness, natural whiteness) are highly appreciated by art publishers!

Made on a cylinder mould (traditional process) : quality close to that of paper made by craft methods. The slow turning of the cylinder enables the fibres to be deposited evenly and spread in all directions over the wire. The paper is therefore more homogeneous and has good dimensional stability. Only papermaking on a cylinder mould can produce paper with deckle edges.




75% cotton/25% esparto

Esparto is an perennial grass that became very popular at the beginning of the 20th century. Its short fibres produce high quality paper: closed formation, good opacity and bulk make it perfect for art books and prints.


Light fine grain. Its smoothness allows the printing of sharp, detailed images.
