Many Hawaii artists have chosen to have their work reproduced using sustainable media such as bamboo, hemp, or sugarcane. These fine art papers offer the same archival qualities as other prints, but with a smaller carbon footprint.
Bamboo is a fast-growing, renewable resource that requires little water and no pesticides to grow. Unlike traditional wood pulp paper, bamboo paper production also results in fewer emissions and less waste. Additionally, bamboo paper has a smooth, luxurious texture that is perfect for showcasing fine art prints, making it an eco-friendly and high-quality choice for artists and art lovers alike.
Sugarcane paper is made from agricultural byproducts, and its production process requires less energy and fewer chemicals compared to traditional wood pulp paper.
Hemp is a sustainable, fast growing, carbon negative crop with deep roots that can prevent soil erosion and improve soil health.
