Pura Smooth

Purity in Expression

Pure – unalloyed, undiluted, unavoidable.

We can think of no higher aim for a humble fine art paper than to assist in the pursuit of purity.  To be a backdrop so inevitable as to go unnoticed.  Precise or kinetic, bold or sincere, cool or off the rails in ecstatic celebration – you know it when you don’t see it.  As ever… our finest for your best.
