In 1584, the papermaker Merten Spieß, with the permission of the Duke of Brunswick, began to create premium writing paper in a paper mill in the Solling hills. Back then, he worked by hand, sheet by sheet, using fine watermarks and deckled edges. What he began over 400 years ago with deeds and official documents, we are continuing today with Hahnemühle FineNotes, as we expand our paper expertise in the area of writing culture.
Since 1584, our papermakers have been making paper with passion. As a company, we focus on quality rather than quantity – in an unbroken German tradition stretching back more than 400 years. What all our paper has in common, then as now, is that it is flawlessly crafted from the finest materials. So we can guarantee the highest quality for every single sheet.
