Are Strathmore products Vegan?
This matter is very important to us and we make it a point to use plant-based and synthetic sizing in the manufacturing of nearly all of our papers.
Our 500 Series Gemini Watercolor, which is made as a traditional “old world” 100% cotton sheet on a cylinder mould machine, is our only paper to use a sizing that is created with animal byproduct made from left over materials after food processing. No animals are killed for the sole purpose of creating sizing for our papers.
With the exception of our Gemini Watercolor paper, all of our other papers are vegan friendly and only use plant-based and synthetic sizing.
