new enquiries sent out: paper edition

Hello everyone,

in the last two days I looked into four companies concerning paper products;

I wrote to:

  • 31st of January 2022, Strathmore – for an update (compendium status: March 2017)
  • 1st of February 2022, Hahnemühle – for an update (compendium status: March 2017)
  • 1st of February 2022, Fabriano – for un update (compendium status; March 2017)
  • 1st of February 2022, Moleskine – first enquiry

You will find the 2017 information in this post or in the compendium.

 

Unfortunately, I have nothing new to report from my Mid-November enquiries, I have yet to receive replies from Faber-Castell (concerning new products), Etchr, Léonard and da Vinci/ Defet.

 

 

 

paper free of animal derivatives – status 2017

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.

About paper:

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)
