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.
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)
