The Saint-Armand handmade papers are made one sheet at a time following traditional methods. The sheets have 4 deckled edges and no grain direction. Bookbinders appreciate their strength. Before making the paper, they prepare the pulp by beating rags. They recycle mostly cotton off-cuts from clothing manufacturers and also linen, flax straw, jute and sisal. The pulping is mechanical. They don't use any chemical or bleaching agents, only water and rags. For example, the white is made from white tee-shirt off-cuts, and the blue from blue denim. The mechanical beating keeps the fibers long and pliable. The papers do not crack when folded and will resist very deep embossing. The pulp is sized with an additive.
