Handmade cards for all occasions. Practical notebooks for sketching and journals. Gift tags and cardmaking kits.


Absorbent art? Porous poetry? Cutting edge coasters? It's up to you what you use these for, but they'll certainly start conversations among your guests. All pieces are on cotton paper handmade in our studio, handprinted with our own text using the linocut or letterpress. Do get in touch through the contact page if you are interested in custom orders for special occasions. 


The papers for sale here are limited editions, with the fibres harvested, cooked, beaten and the sheets handmade in small batches. This accounts for the 'lucky dip' element in the selection packs as our stock is always changing. They can be used for printmaking, collage, letter writing and making books. All are internally sized and most are inkjet printable at your own risk - single sheet feeding recommended.  While making no archival claims, we pH test at each stage to ensure all paper is the right side of neutral. We use cotton, linen and abaca base pulps along with seasonal plant materials and other intriguing inclusions. Prices per sheet unless specified. Please contact us for custom orders, which include plantable seed papers.


Artist's books and framed one-off pieces are added as they become available.
