Acid free and lignin free. It is high quality mould made paper produced through mould cylinder machines which gives the paper unique characteristics similar to hand-made paper. Each sheet of paper is watermarked with the Fabriano logo and "50% COTTON" and has 2 deckle edges.
As of 2016, the Fabriano 5 Watercolour Paper has changed. The paper surface is now not as smooth as it was previously due to a change of paper machine at Fabriano. You may wish to try the new R.K Burts Botanical Ultra Smooth Paper or new for 2017 the Hot Pressed Canson Heritage Watercolour Paper.
