Read on to find out more.
The Hahnemühle company which produces the bamboo paper we use can trace its origins back to 1584 in the picturesque village of Relliehausen, famed for centuries for its paper industry, and the construction of Hahnemühle's Paper Mill by the source of the river in the Solling (A range of hills in Germany’s Lower Saxony region).
The location of the Paper Mill was chosen due the filtration effect from the Solling's sandstone and the softening effect of the pure spring water which produced paper of exceptional quality.
This dedication to quality has been constant throughout Hahnemühle long history and in 2008 it introduced the Hahnemühle bamboo paper as the first of its “Natural Line”, a selection of products made from sustainable raw materials.
Hahnemühle bamboo paper is the world’s first FineArt inkjet paper and made from 90% sustainable bamboo fibres and 10% organic cotton resulting in an environmentally friendly, natural look for the image produced.
The bamboo plants used require minimal maintenance, are fast growing and are free of pesticides. Their rapid growth also ensures a significantly higher yield on the same cropland than other comparable sustainable raw materials, further enhancing their environmental and economic benefits for the farmers.
The bamboo plant also requires less water in its production, resulting in the preservation of our valuable natural resources and protection of the environment.
The natural white, warm-toned bamboo paper does not contain artificial optical brighteners, and stands out thanks to its soft, lightly textured felt composition and sensual feel.
Hahnemühle bamboo paper is acid- and lignin-free and meets the most rigours requirements in terms of age resistance, ensuring the longevity of the artwork.
This unique fusion of sustainable bamboo fibres, soft surface texture and outstanding print quality gives the artwork outstanding expression and soul.
As a result, all of our Hahnemühle bamboo fine art prints gives you a gallery quality image for display, their production is sustainable and thanks to the natural archival qualities of the bamboo paper, they will provide a lifetime of enjoyment.
As we embark on the new ‘Roaring 20s’, we believe this decade will be characterised by a more thoughtful, conscious consumption of the things we choose to bring into our lives…It’s time for the history of art to add a new chapter, a sustainable one.
