The specific kind of paper in this tablet is known as "Verge" (short for vergeures, a word meaning "striped" in French) which refers to the grid of parallel translucent lines that are made as the paper was laid to dry. It gives the paper a three dimensional texture and is acid-free, so has had the lignin removed. This means the paper will not yellow and turn brittle over time. 

Today, most of the paper from this company is made at the Papierfabriek Schut in the Veluwe region of the Netherlands, at a mill on the Heelsum brook.  The mill was established in 1618 by the De Veentjes during the Golden Age of Dutch Masters (period in the 17th century where Dutch  trade, science, military, and art were highly regarded) and was succeeded by the Schut family in 1710, who continued the 400 year tradition of fine paper making.

Use & Care

The pages are top-bound and easy to pull away, making them most useful for writing letters. When you're done with your missive, fold the page three ways and slide into your matching envelope. 

Production & Design

The Schut mill where this paper is made reuses the pure water from the Heelsum Brook to reduce energy and water consumption.  Part of the FSC and PEFC, the Schut mill also guarantees that their wood fiber comes from well managed forests.

The Schut Mill produces both mould made and fourdrinier.  Mould made paper is the finest, oldest form of paper making, and is produced on a cylinder mould that fetches the pulp from a tank and transfers the pulp from mould to the felt, stretching it onto wide belts.  The felt absorbs water and the pressure placed from the cylinder is defined by the felt's structure, giving the paper its grain. Fourdrinier paper is the contemporary way to make paper and is achieved by using a uniquely woven plastic fabric mesh conveyor belt that uses its wet end, the forming section, to create a continuous paper web by passing it through several levels of high pressure pulp squeezing.  Today, Papierfabriek Schut is the last specialty grade paper still in production.
