Centuries-Old Company Light-Years Ahead of Its Time

In the modern fine art paper world, you will find many great products available that meet different quality requirements and artistic demands. However, there is one brand that stands out from the rest for its centuries-old history, purity, and excellence, inevitably attracting many fans worldwide. That brand is Hahnemühle.

Founded in 1584, Hahnemühle has evolved and transcended all trends by producing fine art papers using ancient recipes from high-quality cotton fibers, pulp or plant fibers, and pure spring water, making Hahnemühle one of the leading paper producers worldwide.

Sustainability is top of mind in today’s business environment, but Hahnemühle had already begun its sustainable journey long before it was a popular global movement. As early as 1965, Hahnemühle was the first paper manufacturer to produce exclusively vegan artists’ papers and still does not use animal glues or other animal substrates in their paper production practices today.

In 2008, as part of its “Green Rooster” initiative to support regional, national, and international environmental education programs, Hahnemühle’s sustainable papers were created from unique raw materials like rapidly renewable bamboo grass, which led to the creation of an innovative new line of papers, the “Natural Line.” This new product line is made of bamboo, hemp, agave, and newly added sugar cane, available for fine art photo prints, digital art, or art reproductions. Some important environmentally friendly factors to note about these selected plants are that they require minimal maintenance, can grow quickly, require little water, and don’t need any pesticides.

All Natural Line papers are:

  • Vegan​​​​​​​
  • Resistant to aging
  • Acid-free

Named German “Brand of the Century” for the third time in a row by an advisory board of top brand experts, Hahnemühle continues to surpass its own quality standards through the centuries and looks ahead to protect and preserve natural resources for future generations of artists.
