It is a creamy straw colour, not white, and has some random dark inclusions. It's not perfectly uniform, which I liked. Gave an "urban" feel to my work.
The paper is soft and absorbent, with a matt surface.
If you write on it with an ink pen, the ink spreads very slightly.
I thought it worked really well for oil-based ink printing, and I'll be re-ordering.
