For this purpose, the paper had to meet the high quality standards, Leica Camera presents his materials: in a 16-step test procedures survived "Constellation Jade" among other fast and slow temperature changes from -40 ° to +70 ° C , acetone - order as well as 400 abrasion intervals. The paper achieved excellent test results in abrasion and acetone resistance and was in this respect even the best leathers in nothing. The lavishly produced and refined packaging reminiscent of a paper sample book, thereby unpacking the camera to create a unique brand experience. On 16 layers of fine paper claim and pioneering spirit of Fedrigoni's 125 - year history in typography and graphic design come to life.
