I've always been interested in crafting and over the years have tried my hand at many of the trends. I love the idea of creating and producing something useful, unique, especially when its for the enjoyment of others.
When in Berlin in 2017, where my daughter was living at the time, I stumbled across this unique alternative fabric called Washable Paper, at some local markets we were browsing. After asking the staller holder many of the same questions I get asked today I decided Australia should also experience it's many eco qualities. I spent many months searching for a distributor and today I import the fabric and Papercutz was born in 2018.
My products are all handmade by myself in Brisbane on my well-loved 35 year old Janome sewing machine. My sewing room is in my home in what was once a walk-in-robe. The lounge room floor is the cutting room, a drying rack is where I hang all of the Washable Paper pieces to dry – they are then ready to sew.
It's a labour of love creating my range from home but very satisfying. Although the creating process isn't glamorous the results speak for themselves: stylish, practical and long lasting, eco-friendly products.
