I thought I would share the information here as well, since I just wrote about it to a reader. I haven’t done those – if you will – reminders -in the past; only passed gathered information on in replies to reader enquiries but not mentioned them on here; but I think it might be informative to more.
in 2017, I collected information about following brands selling paper products free of animal derivatives (see compendium):
- Hahnemühle: all FineArt paper products, technical papers and canvases are free of animal derivatives,with the exception of Photo Silk Baryta and PastellFix (status 2017); now Hahnemühle even labels new products that are free of animal derivatives; (they even sell coloured watercolour paper now)
- Fabriano : all paper except three, are free of animal derivatives. The exceptions are Roma, Esportazione and Secolo XIII (status: March 2017)
- Strathmore: all paper products are free of animal derivatives except Gemini Watercolour Paper. (status: 2017)
