This Rossi’s italian paper has become very well known worldwid.
The printing process of Carta Varese collection is elaborate. The two-way and multi-coloured papers are printed in a off set machine. Every “pantone” colour is printed separately, so the paper sheets run through the machine several times, a method reminiscent of silk-screen printing. This is the reason why the colours of Rossi’s Carta Varese are so bright and dense even though it is an offset print.
Carta Varese is not only a “classic” beautiful but also substantial. The paper sheet, cm. 70×100 (inch. 28×40), is a 85 g/qm ivory paper, uncoated and acid free.
Carta Varese has a wide variety of applications, but first and foremost it is used as wrapping paper. Secondly, it is a very popular covering paper for boxes, albums, books and booklets. Sometimes it is called “cupboard paper” as one can protect and decorate drawers and boards with it. It also serves as end paper in hiqh quality book productions.
Additionally, Carta Varese is used as Origami, scrapbooking, collage, decoration, doll’s house material and in many other artistic applications.
