PAPER: Fabriano Artistico, 300gsm, 100% cotton, artist-grade
ARTISTICO: A classic white paper used by artists for centuries, this natural warm white paper is achieved without the use of optical brighteners. Papers are synthetically sized both internally and externally so that no animal by-products are used. Fabriano's Artistico papers are mould-made of 100% cotton and are acid-free/pH neutral and chlorine-free. Papers are luxurious yet durable and can handle lifting and scraping without compromising their integrity. Synthetically sized both internally and externally so that no animal by-products are used. Suitable for all water media, printmaking, digital printing, charcoal, pastel, and other drawing applications.
Very few companies can claim a longer or more distinguished heritage than Fabriano. Dating back to 1264, the Fabriano mill’s fine arts papers were used and highly praised by Michelangelo. Fabrianese paper masters pioneered many of the processes now common in paper manufacture today, including the watermark and the technique of surface sheet gluing using gelatine. In 2002, Fabriano became part of the Fedrigoni Group, which backed it with significant new investments. The company is committed to renewable energy and makes extensive use of self-generated hydroelectric power. Still based in the Italian town of Fabriano, the company celebrates 750 years of quality paper made in the same place with the same passion and dedication.
