The Reference in the art world since 1492 and a standard of high-end publishing papers, Velin d'Arches has a pronounced fine grain that is ideal for academic drawing. It allows the artist to play with the surface, to obtain relief effects, and is easily erasable without linting.

Made 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.
