The special quality of these envelopes comes from the handwork required to complete them. Since tissue is so delicate, it can only be attached to the envelope paper by hand, requiring a quality and attention to detail that most machine-stamped envelopes don't carry.

The specific kind of paper used for these envelopes is known as "Verge" (short for vergeures, a word meaning "striped" in French). It refers to the grid of parallel translucent lines that are made as the paper is laid to dry, giving the paper a three dimensional texture. The paper is also acid-free, so will not yellow and turn brittle over time. 

The 100g paper holds lush ink without bleeding through. Just under the fold of the envelope, there is a stamp marked "Paris," with the original manufacturer's name.

Use & Care

Use the envelope with matching laid finish stationery paper or fold-over card stock. Choose red for a special occasion, pink for a wedding or a birth, and white for a subtle hello.  Gently wet the edges and seal, and look forward to the small happiness caused by its receipt.

Production & Design

Most of this manufacturer's paper is made in the Netherlands at the Schut mill, which reuses the pure water from the Heelsum brook to reduce water and energy consumption.  Part of the FSC and PEFC, the Schut mill also guarantees that their wood fiber comes from well managed forests.

The laid paper of the envelope itself is carefully attached by hand with white tissue lining.
