Even though I am glad that nowadays there is a very wide range of papers in the
FineArt area, the more difficult it is to find one’s favorite papers for the different types of motifs. And I am already increasingly concerned with the topic because of my wife’s store. All the more valuable are tips from friends, in this case from my colleague Jochen, who recommended Hahnemühle’s Bamboo to me. Since Marina has only had it in the range for a few days, it was obvious to order and test this. Hahnemühle’s FineArt Baryta has long been one of my favorite papers, along with Tecco Baryta.
The feel of the paper is very firm and pleasant to the touch. The fine grain is very noble and the finest details can be seen. Hahnemühle calls the medium a destination for spiritual black and white photography:
Data: 290 g/m² – 90% bamboo fibers – 10% cotton – natural white
„Hahnemühle Bamboo is the world’s first digital FineArt InkJet paper made from bamboo fibers. Bamboo stands for spirituality, naturalness and resource-saving paper production. It is especially suitable for warm-toned color and monochrome prints that particularly emphasize the sensuality of the motifs.“
The pictures shown are taken with extreme side light to give an impression of the structure. Of course, the effect is not as strong in normal lighting.
The smallest quantity is 10 sheets in A4 format – is well suited for extended testing. Other formats include A3,A3+A2 and various roll formats.

Overall, it will be part of artidomo’s permanent paper stock with immediate effect, alongside tecco’s BWR300/305 pure cotton paper.
Marina will also include it in A4 format as a printing service.
