The Strathmore brand has been revered by printers and designers for over 120 years, and trusted for its uncompromising quality and tactile beauty. Strathmore papers have been crafted to the same exacting standards since 1892 and used by artists, novelists and writers to memorialize their most inspired moments.

Inspired by the flora of Scotland’s Strathmore Valley, company founder Horace Moses adopted both the Strathmore name and the valley’s natural icon—the thistle—as symbols of quality for his papers.
