Stands the Test of Time
For over 1,500 years, cotton rag paper has been the choice of artists, composers, historians, writers and book printers.
Free of Lignin and Acids
Cotton is nature’s purest form of cellulose. It is inherently free of lignin, acid and other non-cellulose contaminants found in wood pulp.
Strong, Resilient, Durable
The long flat fibers of natural cotton pulp intertwine, creating a strong, resilient matboard, more durable than bleached chemical wood pulp fiber.
Preserving the Tradition
Cotton rag matboard was designed specifically for the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York in the late 1920s. Crescent’s entire line of cotton RagMat, the industry’s most trusted brand of cotton rag matboard, is still produced following the time-honored practice of making paper from cotton fiber. It’s a Crescent tradition that continues to stand the test of time.
