Hahnemühle has led the market in FineArt Inkjet paper for the past 20 years, developing innovative products as we move with market trends that reflect the needs of fine artists, photographers, printmakers and illustrators. The Hahnemühle Natural Line brings us to a new market first, using highly renewable fibers – bamboo, hemp and agave – while maintaining high performance and longevity. In recent years, we’ve seen professional artists and photographers become increasingly concerned about the environment and look for ways to reduce their impact. Our new environmental choices of fine art media are one way of reducing environmental impact while retaining the sensation of the printed image ”comments Simon Waller, Hahnemühle UK General Manager.
“The Natural Line range of papers is particularly popular with our customers. The print quality is second to none and the papers have a unique surface and tactile quality. Artists are drawn to these natural papers ”
