Paper samples from Somerset

"SOMERSET", Papermill ST. CUTHBERTS-INVERESK PLC

The manufacture of artists' papers here in the Axe Valley in Somerset originated at the neighbouring Wookey Hole Mill and the tradition continued when St. Cuthberts took that over. As demand for the mill's papers increased, production was actually transferred to the St. Cuthberts site where artists' mouldmade grades are now manufactured. A combination of traditional craftmanship, modern technology and computer control has allowed these artists' papers to become a first-class range.

The difference between various Somerset papers is largely in the surface structure, not in the composition of the paper (pulp). The paper colour can be different. Below you see the four surface structures of Somerset papers. Just to compare the structures. For that reason the differences have been enhanced.

Somerset Book

no clear structure

Somerset Satin

Somerset Velvet

Somerset Textured

Below you see the different "colours", from "radiant white", white, soft white (off-white) to buff, antique and black. The Somerset papers are always combinations of colour, surface structure, weight and size.
