Since 1584, Hahnemuhle's papermakers have been proving that they superbly master the old craft: uniquely beautiful papers are created from pure spring water and first-class pulps, the same today as over 400 years ago. In the beginning, hand-made vat papers were made, and today traditional recipes are still used to make papers which enthuse painters, graphic artists, illustrators, bookbinders and, more recently an increasing number of photographers.
Hahnemuhle's Traditional Fine Art Collection offers the right artists' paper for each technique: for watercolour or acrylic painting, for sketches and pastel drawings, for charcoal, red chalk or oil paints. Hahnemuhle paper is also the first choice for various printing techniques, for restoration and high quality book-binding. Apart from a wide range of different grammages and surfaces, Hahnemuhle also offer papers with classic watermarks and real deckle edges.
