Colors of Nature's Choice for Paper

Focus on Quality: Paper

Colors of Nature is committed to the finest quality in all of its raw materials and finished products.  The additional criteria for all of its supplies to be vegan and cruelty-free further refined our search for art products that are earth-friendly and ethically produced. We searched for paper lines that meet our stringent criteria for quality and ethics.  We found EcoPaper and Hahnemuhle as two unique manufacturers and providers of exactly the kind of paper we were looking for.


This German company has been making paper since 1584. Colors of Nature is the exclusive distributor of Hahnemuhle art paper in Canada.  We chose to offer bamboo paper from Hahnemuhle because of bamboo’s attributes as a sustainable and quickly renewable, low impact source of cellulose fibres. We also love the paper quality itself; it’s lightly textured, high quality and smooth to paint on. The best part about this paper is that is 100% vegan, made in earth-friendly ways and is cruelty-free.

This American-Costa Rican company has a strong ethical mission to preserve and sustain our natural environment.  In that way, Colors of Nature and EcoPaper share a common vision for our planet.  What makes EcoPaper unique is their process.  They mix post-consumer paper and agricultural waste from banana, coffee and tobacco packing to make a beautiful paper that performs really well with watercolor paint, pencil, charcoal, crayons and pastels. As artists we love everything about this paper! Colors of Nature is EcoPaper’s exclusive distributor in Canada.
