Century Cotton Wove
Fedrigoni presents the new swatch book for the Century Cotton Wove range - products with superior aesthetic properties and distinctive characteristics.
Century Cotton Wove has 25% cotton content ensuring softness, durability and superior mechanical strength.
Century Cotton Wove is a deluxe product that until now did not have a specific promotional tool. The portfolio is expanded with the "White & Ivory" series, distinguished by the cover in yellow.
The special features of Cotton Wove are its superior velvety surface and tactile sensations, look-through and printability. The "Century" version - dedicated to stationery and correspondence - is available in a 45x64 cm format even with fixed-point watermarks; it is ideal for offset pre-press and subsequent laser-based printing (Litholaser).
The watermark is synonymous with quality and status - the distinctive features of a deluxe brand.
The illustrations in the visual book are inspired by traditional typography for informative presentation of the characteristics of the range (cotton content, colours, weights, formats) and possible applications.
In more detail: Paper & Cotton
Cotton is the noblest material for paper-making.
It is the strongest and most flexible fibre available in nature, which is why it is used to make banknotes and deluxe art papers.
The natural absence of lignin also means that paper made with cotton is even more long-lasting.
Advantages for users:
- Higher mechanical strength: disintegration, tearing, creasing, bursting and stretching….
- Softness, distinctive tactile sensations (softer paper)
- Greater flexibility
- Better sheet formation at the same mechanical strength
- Long-life: it is estimated that for each percentage point of cotton fibre, the paper can be expected to last for an extra year under normal use.
Advantages for the environment:
- Annual plant, which grows back every year with no impact on forestry assets
- Fewer chemical additives and whitening agents are used in production. In fact, compared to fibres obtained from wood, cotton has lower lignin content and is consequently and naturally lighter in colour, cleaner and brighter, as well as more easily separable from lignin itself.
- A raw material that is actually a by-product: cotton used in the paper-making industry is not grown specifically for this purpose but for the textile industry, where first and second cut linters are effectively waste products.
