Journal 11 - Scottie

This book is named Scottie after the beautiful country of Scotland. In the mid-1890's, Strathmore's founder Horace Moses made a trip to the Strathmore Valley in Scotland and became inspired by its beauty and the blooming August thistles. By 1895 Mr. Moses began using the phrase "Strathmore Quality" and the thistle as a symbol of the highest quality papers.
