Original Crown Mill has its roots in the Belgian courts. The design draws inspiration from a 17th-century handmade writing sheet, commissioned by Charles II and made by the monks of La Hulpe Monastery in Belgium. Since 1870, this sheet has been replicated in a classic line of cards, sheets, and lined envelopes. Today the collection includes deckled edge paper, notecard sets, smooth writing paper and envelopes, and 100% cotton paper. Original Crown Mill paper is a great partner for your fountain pen and a beautiful choice for thank you notes and handwritten letters.
