320GSM SMOOTH FINE ART PAPER, 100% RECYCLED CONTENT: 75% SUGAR CANE, 25% COTTON RAG
The base paper is made by Hahnemühle. Breathing Color then apply their renowned inkjet coating. The result is the perfect fusion of the responsible use of raw materials and the remarkable print quality, high densities, and wide color gamut you've come to expect from Breathing Color media.
"Bagasse" is the pulp produced from a byproduct of raw sugar production. This pulp is mixed with cotton waste to make this paper's base. This paper is the perfect solution for the demanding artist, photographer, or buyer demanding both excellent print quality and eco-friendly materials. It's the perfect "green" paper.
At 320gsm, this deluxe matte fine art paper with textured surface is ideal for fine art reproduction and fine art photographic imagery. It is able to produce extremely crisp and accurate detail, as well as deep, rich color and remarkably-dense blacks.
Pura Bagasse is also printable on both sides! This is perfect for printing high-end note cards, photo books, and more! Please note that due to the traditional manufacturing process of the base the texture of the two sides are different.
If you are new to Breathing Color and would like to test this product, we highly recommend that you take advantage of the inexpensive Trial rolls offered which provide enough product for sufficiently running tests and creating samples. Trial rolls are limited to one per customer per product.
