Hahnemühle’s New Eco Friendly Papers

Hahnemühle’s new Natural Line of papers provide a eco-friendlier format as giclee fine art and photo papers. These papers are produced from unique raw materials: bamboo, hemp and agave. All three of these plants require minimal maintenance, grow quickly and are free of pesticides when grown. Their rapid growth also means more cellulose can be produced on the same cropland than those that use other raw materials. They also require much less water, meaning they use fewer growing resources achieving a more environmentally friendly status.
