For many years, Hahnemühle has been consistently working towards finding more environmentally friendly and sustainable ways to produce paper.
Hahnemühle started to use bamboo fibres, a fast-growing and sustainable raw material, in 2008 and launched the mixed media paper Bamboo, made from 90% bamboo fibres and 10% cotton rag. Hahnemühle extended the range with bamboo papers and books suitable for different painting techniques throughout the years.
With the new paper innovations Agave and Hemp, Hahnemühle focuses more on resource-saving and environmentally friendly papers. Hahnemühle’s Natural Line integrates all resource-saving papers: Agave Watercolour, Hemp Sketch, Bamboo Mixed Media and Bamboo Sketch.
Hahnemühle supports environmental and social projects at regional, national and international level with part of the proceeds from the Natural Line within its Green Rooster Initiative.
