"Schut Papermill" is the only survived specialized papermill in the east of the Netherlands. Hundreds of papermills were active in the part of the country in the 18th century. Van Gelder Papermill started in 1618 and was bought by the Schut family in 1710. The Papermill became a part of a specialized group of papermills in 1982 called "De Gelderse Papiergroep". In 1998 Schut Papermill was sold to the French papermill Claire Fontaine.

Around 1800 some people of Van Gelder went to Japan to learn about the Japanese ways of papermaking. Based on these trips they developed a paper called "Simili Japon" . This paper is still produced today.

The papers, although fabricated from a base pulp of high quality, are not truly mouldmade: they are produced on a unique machine where the web evolves at the same speed as on a cylinder-mould. Continuous production can be maintained through the advantage of a constant pulp supply, and the hybrid machine shares its drying end with the cylinder-mould machine. The Schut range of papers, although technically termed "machinemade", are actually much closer to their mouldmade cousins.
