The history of the Cartiera Amatruda dates back to the fifteenth century. Here, paper is still handmade, following the ancient Amalfi tradition. A high-quality paper, extremely durable, but also sought-after from an aesthetic point of view, appreciated and exported all over the world. Highly-prestigious works have been printed volumes on this paper, such as Processus contra Templarios, presented at the Vatican in 2007. However, in addition to publishing, this product has many other uses: paper for artistic use, for invitations, calendars, photo albums, or for the simple pleasure of writing.
For information on where to buy, please contact the workshop: from Monday to Saturday from 8 am to 12.30 pm and from 3 pm to 5 pm
