David Carruthers

Papermaking has been in David Carruthers family for generations. His grandfather, George Carruthers, was the owner the Interlake Paper Mill, in Ontario. He also wrote the book “Papermaking” which traces the history of 100 years of papermaking in Canada up to 1905. David’s father was a paper salesman with the family firm and he had a gift to sell remainders by the carload.

In 1979, when David opened La Papeterie Saint-Armand, he had just left his job at the Pulp & Paper Association of Canada because he had enough of office work. His knowledge of the paper trade told him that there was room for hand-made paper mills, with a dash of technology. His background was in History of Economics and he loves 19th century technology.  Since that time the Saint-Armand handmade papers, the machine-made Canal papers, and the sanded paper Sabretooth have established his mill as a favourite among artists, art restorers, and bookbinders.
