Bamboo Printmaking

Awagami Bamboo Paper contains 70% bamboo fiber and 30% recycled washi paper, placing it among the most eco-friendly papers available to printmakers today. Bamboo is the fastest growing timber plant on earth and has many environmental benefits over traditional cotton- and wood-based papers; it does not require fertilizers or pesticides as cotton does, and it requires a fraction of the water needed to grow cotton. Furthermore, bamboo produces 35% more oxygen and consumes four times as much CO2 as trees. In addition to its many eco-friendly attributes, Awagami Bamboo Paper has a luxurious texture similar to silk, making it an excellent choice for today's shrewd and environmentally-conscious letterpress and printmaking artist.
