The innovative bamboo papers Bamboo 265 and Bamboo 290 won 1st place in the category Creative Product of the Year. Hahnemühle, as a traditional artist paper manufacturer, created both papers from bamboo fibres, a rapidly renewable resource: Bamboo 265 for universal use as a high quality paint and drawing paper and Bamboo 290 as the world's first digital Fine Art paper made of bamboo fibres for premium inkjet prints. Traditional artists as well Fine Art specialists and photographers are very excited about these natural white, warm-tone artist papers that present such a fine, tactile surface texture.
