For four centuries, La Papeterie de Lana, situated in Docelles, a short distance from Arches, has continued a papermaking tradition that began in 1950 with hand production. Today, even with modern manufacturing methods, Lana has conserved its knowledge and produces notable papers on cylinder-mould machines. A rare manufacturer, the company is also skilled in making customized watermarks in line or tone. Lana’s reputation was built on very thin grades and security and packaging papers, but its fine art and bookmaking ranges are of very high quality; all the papers have a neutral pH, and will not yellow with age, characteristics guaranteed by the presence of watermarks or embossings (notable in LANAQUARELL).
