Product Overview


Arches Velin d'Arches is the reference in the world of art since 1492! It is made nowadays on a cylinder mould, the slow turning of the cylinder enables the fibres to be deposited evenly and spread in all directions over the wire.

The paper is homogeneous and has very good dimensional stability. When printing, the job of positioning the humidified paper is much easier and the paper can easily withstand repeated passages through the press. Only papermaking on a cylinder mould can produce paper with deckle edges.
