Gmund Bio Cycle Chlorophyll card

Gmund Bio Cycle Chlorophyll

Grass cut from Upper Bavarian meadows provides half of the contents of this paper. The grass is painstakingly harvested and dried to achieve the long-fibered structure that’s indispensable for a voluminous paper. Grass grows everywhere. The ecological balance is unbeatable. The paper is radiant with a vivid green colour created in part by adding natural chlorophyll. An impressively heavy weight of 600 g/m2 makes this paper ideal for letterpress or silkscreen printing.
