Hahnemühle’s 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.

Bamboo

Hahnemühle Bamboo is the world’s first giclee and photo paper made from 90% bamboo fibers, for a natural look and environmentally friendly paper production. The natural white, warm-toned bamboo paper does not contain optical brighteners, and stands out thanks to its soft, lightly textured felt structure and sensual feel. The premium matte surface delivers excellent printing results with defined reproduction of color and detail, particularly for warm hues and monochrome prints. Bamboo is acid- and lignin-free and meets the most precise requirements in terms of age resistance. The unique combination of sustainable bamboo fibers, soft surface texture and impressive print quality gives the artwork outstanding expression and soul.

Hemp

Hahnemühle Hemp uses one of the oldest and most diverse natural fibers in the world and is made of 60% hemp fiber. This giclee paper’s base impresses with its bright white natural tone, and thanks to the bright white color of the hemp fibers, no optical brighteners are required. The lightly textured surface gives the paper a pleasant, silky feel. Combined with a premium matte surface, this is a truly versatile paper for your photos and fine art reproductions. Colors and details are brilliantly reproduced, the depth of the black truly stands out and contrasts are reproduced with stunning effect. The acid- and lignin-free paper meets the most exacting requirements for age resistance. Hemp was an essential part of paper production for centuries, and due to its extremely robust fibers, it has often been used for long-lasting historical documents, such as the Gutenberg Bible and the US Declaration of Independence.
