120gsm for dry techniques
160gsm for mixed techniques
200 and 240gsm for wet techniques.

Fabriano START is a white paper with a green soul thanks to the use of hydroelectric energy during its production and the consumption of FSC certified cellulose fibres.

Very few companies can claim a longer or more distinguished heritage than Fabriano. Dating back to 1264, the Fabriano mill’s fine arts papers were used and highly praised by Michelangelo. Fabrianese paper masters pioneered many of the processes now common in paper manufacture today, including the watermark and the technique of surface sheet gluing using gelatine. In 2002, Fabriano became part of the Fedrigoni Group, which backed it with significant new investments. The company is committed to renewable energy and makes extensive use of self-generated hydroelectric power. Still based in the Italian town of Fabriano, the company celebrates 750 years of quality paper made in the same place with the same passion and dedication.
