The material exudes naturalness and is suitable for letterpress and all other printing processes. For thousands of years, the particularly long and durable cotton fibers have been processed into paper. The high stability has always been convincing for classical letterpress printing and the neutral pH value enables the long durability of centuries-old books. 

 For the production of cotton paper, fibers are used that are a by-product of cotton processing for the clothing industry.
