Description

Clairefontaine's Calligraphy Pad contains 25 sheets of 130 g 'simili Japon' paper. This ivory-hued, satin-textured paper is suitable for classical calligraphy with nibs or brushes as well as relief printing or typography. The paper style-simili Japon-- was developed by the Schut Mill in the Netherlands during the late 1800s after the Schut family was impressed at how Japanese paper enhanced the performance of writing instruments during a visit. The development of this calligraphy pad, then, is a testament to the historic exchange of papermaking knowledge and a continued passion for beautiful paper. Still produced in the same Dutch mill, we believe this pad is the perfect medium for all your calligraphic endeavors.

Clairefontaine Brand Story

The key to great paper is quality and tradition. Clairefontaine, signature European paper, possesses both of these qualities and more. As well as being impeccable in quality, this brand prides itself on its environmentally friendly practices and products. Using paste from sustainable forests and ultra-pure calcium, they strictly select which ingredients go into their product to assure only the finest quality and performance for artists and writers alike.

As well as masterful quality, Clairefontaine also has an impressive history and heritage. They have been making paper a long time and they have been doing it right. In 1858, they began to produce their high quality paper in the beautiful Etival-Clairefontaine region of France. Only a few years later, their factory was the backbone of the region because of the quality and importance of their notebooks, envelopes and paper. To this day, Clairefontaine still produces the finest paper in the same factory, carrying along their tradition of quality for us, who deserve only the best.
