Rag Mat, for centuries, cotton rag paper, prized for strength, purity and stability, has been the choice of artists, composers, writers and printers. Today it is specified for currency, stock certificates and government documents.

Cotton rag matboard was designed specifically for the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York in the late 1920s. Today, virtually all museums and libraries rely on cotton rag matboard, often referred to as museum board. Crescent’s entire line of cotton RagMat, the industry’s most trusted brand of cotton rag matboard, is still produced following the time-honored practice of making paper from cotton fiber. It’s a Crescent tradition that continues to stand the test of time.  Cotton is nature’s purest form of cellulose. It is inherently free of lignin, acid and other non-cellulose contaminants found in wood pulp. Cotton fiber pulp is reliable, sturdy and far superior to bleached, chemically processed wood pulp used to produce other conservation boards.

Cotton has a natural, lasting brightness that does not require the high level of bleaching agents typically used to whiten chemically processed wood pulp boards.
