The Canson paper mill has always been synonymous with innovation: from the invention of the hot-air balloon - made entirely from paper - in December 1782, to that of colored paste paper, tissue paper, tracing paper, paper for art editions and digital photography, children’s drawing paper and paper for pastels, watercolors, oil paints and acrylic.
