Somerset Papers (Satin)
The Somerset Papers are world leading traditional printmaking papers, mould made from 100% cotton to the highest of archival standards.The surface of the Somerset Satin range has a gentle texture, it is soft yet it is a strong and stable enough sheet to ensure excellent printing.
The Somerset Satin sheets remain flat after printing (they do not buckle) and offer a long life to finished editions.
The Somerset Satin paper is available in both Soft White and White tones.
All materials are screened in the mill to ensure minimal environmental effect. No hazardous chemicals are released into the water ways. Pulps are sourced from sustainable sources (no rainforests are harmed in making the papers), and the cotton linters are a by-product from the textile industry. It's acid-free and age-resistant, so your art will look just as stunning decades from now.
