The Rives BFK range of printmaking papers has set the standard for every mould made grade manufactured in Europe.
Rives BFK is consistently made with 100% cotton and no optical brightening agents. It is a bright white, smooth, soft and pliable sheet paper. BFK Rives is very versatile with an absorbent wove surface that is suitable for all forms of printmaking.
Its smooth surface, soft texture, and light sizing allow it to pick up every detail. It has two natural deckles, and two simulated, being torn at the finishing stage.
A question that is often raised is what do the initials BFK stand for? The answer is that they were the initials of the owners of the Rives mill in France at the beginning of the 19th century - Blanchet Frées and Kiebler.
