At Simple Art we aim to deliver quality products made from sustainable materials through environmentally conscious practices.
Where possible, we use environmentally friendly products and packaging.
Hemp is a naturally strong, breathable, and durable fibre with a linen like texture that is machine washable. Hemp's dense growth has high resistance to pests and rot requiring no chemicals of any kind to grow. As well as being 100% compostable at the end of its life, the plant regenerates and improves soil health as it grows. It is fast becoming the ideal fabric of the future due to its low impact on the environment. This is why we chose Hemp totes for our Simple Hemp Carry Bags.
Hahnemuhle 100% cotton 308gsm Photo Rag paper is made entirely from a recycled by product of the cotton industry. Cotton Photo Rag is an archival quality art paper made without trees instead reducing waste from the textile industry by utilising cotton linters. The cotton photo rag we use for our Simple Art Prints meets the highest industry standards and with the right care will last for more than 100 years.
Uncoated textured Via Felt Bright stock is made from 30% recycled post consumer waste paper and paper from Well Managed Forests. Our card stock paper is carbon neutral, made with wind power and is Elemental Chlorine Free (ECF) making it ideal for our range of Simple Greeting Cards.
