Minimalist art, minimal impact on the environment
Designed with the planet in mind, Noama art is created with vegan gouache paint, sustainable materials and found papers. Art prints are on natural Hahnemühle bamboo paper and are printed in London.
The paper and giclée printing technique used means the pieces are gallery quality, long lasting, environmentally friendly, and since they’re printed to order, there’s no waste stock. The packaging also lives up to the same eco values, as it features recycled and biodegradable materials. You can recycle the postcard that comes with every order, but since it makes a cute mini art print, you probably won’t want to.
The bamboo plant that provide the cellulose require minimal maintenance, grow quickly and don’t need any pesticides. Their rapid growth means that more cellulose can be produced on the same cropland than with other raw materials, and they also require much less water, helping to save valuable resources and protect the environment.

What is giclée?
Giclée is a printing process, we use it for our art prints. It is environmentally safe, since the inks are water-based and the paper is archival and acid-free. It's also of exceptional quality, meaning your art prints will last longer.
Why do I have to wait for my art to be printed?
We print to order so that we don't have any waste stock. Art is usually printed on the same day that the order is placed and shipped the following day, so you really don't have to wait very long to shop sustainably.
How is your original art sustainable?
The gouache paints that I use in my original paintings are water-based and vegan. I also use found papers, which could be recycled, discarded or had a previous life as something like a placemat or shopping bag. I also use sustainable tools, like a bamboo ruler and refillable pencil.
What about packaging?
Our packaging is biodegradable or recycled with the exception of mailing tube caps which are plastic but recyclable, and the protective packing that fragile frames are wrapped in – we're working on this. Our stickers and postcards included in our packages are printed on recycled paper and are compostable.
What can I do to be a more sustainable shopper?
All of our products are of a high quality, and providing they are taken care of, will last a long time. All we ask of you, as our customer, is to only purchase items from us that you truly love. That way, you're more likely to hold on to it forever and therefore reduce the need to buy a new product to replace it.
