At Black Sand Publishing we pride ourselves on offering high quality products for all of our artists. A lot of research has gone into choosing best paper for a long lasting, bright, and resilient paper print. One of our artists, Heather Brown has chosen to produce all of her matted prints using sugarcane paper, and we couldn’t be happier!
Sugarcane paper is produced from the fibers of the sugarcane plant. Just as regular (wood based) paper is created through refining pulp from a tree, the cellulose of the sugarcane plant is refined and treated to create the bright, smooth sugarcane paper that we know and love.
Sugarcane paper is regarded as the ultimate bio-sustainable solution because the fibers that are used to make the paper would have traditionally been burned, creating greenhouse emissions; left in landfills or otherwise wastefully disposed of. Choosing to use sugarcane paper means standing up against deforestation and supports a sustainable future.
