I am a papermaker. Paper lover by heart and a little stationary addicted. Originally I was working in hospitality. But when corona hit us and the hospitality industry, I was at home without work thinking what we actually would like to do. It went from something creative to painting with watercolors. As it takes a lot of practice to get good at painting and a lot of mixing paint and trying it out on scrap paper, I started to feel guilty of the amount on paper I was wasting. but the good news is! Paper is easily recycled. I started to make paper and had so much fun creating this new product that we decided to start selling it online.
The Paper Makers was born!
All of our papers are handmade in our studio with deckled edges. Not one paper is the same, and we love it. We believe it gives our paper authenticity and character.
A fun fact, I started making paper in our living room. It took a lot of trial and error. In the very beginning I was putting the freshly scooped paper on trays and let my husband and brother stand on the trays to press them. Therefore I called the company the Papermaker(s) as in multiple people. At the moment its just me in my lovely two floor studio creating all those sheets.
I just LOVE to see all the things created on the paper and with the monthly paper subscription I hope to inspire you and I hope te be inspired by you to keep creating and exploring new ways and product for paper making. If you have any inquiries, questions and idea's, please don't hesitate to contact me. I love to stay in touch personally.
