Noblesse is the premier watercolour paper produced at the Schut mill in the Netherlands. Schut's "De Veentjes" paper mill has been producing fine papers since 1618.
The surface of this paper has undergone a proprietary gelatin sizing process that delivers extraordinarily brilliant colours. Made from 100% cotton, this acid-free, off-white paper is best suited for experienced artists, as its unique surface treatment makes corrections more difficult.
Sheets are 140 lb (300 gsm) weight. Block sizes are metric, produced for the European continental market, and vary slightly in dimension from the sizes that are customary in British and North American markets.
