BEYOND TRADITIONAL KRAFT PAPER
Gascogne Papier was founded by foresters in 1925 to support the growth and conservation of the local forests in the Landes de Gascogne. Located in the heart of this woodland in Mimizan, the integrated factory produces natural Kraft paper from the pure fibres of local pine bark, which are transformed into highly resistant, premium paper. We use this paper for all our ranges as it’s recyclable and recycled to guarantee the forest is managed sustainably over time.
Using this premium raw material, at La Compagnie du Kraft, we have developed 7 different finishes for our Kraft paper, adapted to all your different requirements and tastes. Forget the idea the Kraft paper is only used for wrapping ! It can also become a sensual writing surface with delicate nuances and a unique texture.
KRAFT PAPER FINISHES FOR NOTEBOOKS
BROWN STRIPED - 90gr/m2
Brown machine-glazed kraft paper. One side is smooth to make writing easier and more comfortable, the other is fibered, ideal for oily writing instruments. This paper is perfect for pencils, pens and rollerballs, less so for fountain pens (although the results are still very presentable). This paper features fine tactile lines making it easier to write in a straight line.
WHITE VELLUM - 100gr/m2
Unlaid white kraft paper, calendered. With a unique fibered look, this paper is design to make writing easier. Slightly opaque revealing the natural fibres, the calendered paper lets fountain pens to glide accross the pages, altough it is perfectly compatible with all writing instruments. For the LINED version, we've added dotted lines on one side, the other blank for all your sketches and doodles. For the DOTTED version, there's a grid pattern with dots every 5mm printed on both sides.
