The true deckled edge, on all four sides of each card and along the envelope closure, emphasizes the luscious texture of this pure cotton rag paper, adding dimensionality and character. Lastly, the paper has the distinctive and subtle Amalfi "Amatruda" watermark that authenticates this as Amalfi premium stationery.
Choose from one of two watermarks, the Amalfi Crest or the Angel watermark. The Amalfi Crest watermarked stationery includes matching envelopes that measure 4 1/2" x 8 3/4" and are used with a letter fold (two folds creating three panels). The Angel watermarked stationery includes envelopes that measure 6 1/2" x 9", and are used with a French fold (folded first vertically and then horizontally creating four panels).
Traditionally, the papers have been watermarked with cities' coats-of-arms, as well as religious and heraldic symbols. Each deckle-edged sheet is crafted with the utmost care, using many of the traditional methods developed in the Middle Ages.
