For centuries, cotton rag paper, prized for strength, purity and stability, has been the choice of artists, composers, writers and printers. Today it is specified for currency, stock certificates and government documents.
Cotton rag matboard was designed specifically for the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York in the late 1920s. Today, virtually all museums and libraries rely on cotton rag matboard, often referred to as museum board.
Crescent's entire line of cotton RagMat, the industry's most trusted brand of cotton rag matboard, is still produced following the time-honored practice of making paper from cotton fiber. It's a Crescent tradition that continues to stand the test of time.
