Our Story

At Paper Garden, we make illustrated paper and wooden products. The illustrations combined with thoughtfully designed products is our way of telling stories to the world. Our journey into products started with paper, water colours and a Canon home printer. During the 2020 lockdown we created our very first product, a small desk calendar comprising 12 original watercolour illustrations mounted on a handmade wooden stand. We now make cards, bookmarks, cute magnets - to name a few. We saw that our products are most often bought for gifting. This little brand has become an unintentional gift shop and we absolutely love that.

Each of our wooden products are individually handmade followed by burning the illustration on the surface by hand using the technique of Pyrography. This is a time consuming process and hence we only make our wooden products in small batches.

We wish to work with more materials going forward. The way we see it is that any material with a potential for drawing on it can be a canvas for our products. But as a small business just finding its feet in the market we want to focus on one thing at a time and be good at it. So we stuck to paper and wood for now.

What started it all was a simple itch to create a craft business. What keeps us going is the joy of seeing a product come to life! Our dream for Paper Garden is to continue creating products that you want to carry along even when you move to different cities and countries . A little piece of home that you can take with you.
