World Paper, Inc. Designs and Manufactures Fine Tree-Free Handmade Paper Products for retail stores, corporations and consumers and collaborates on projects for traditional and innovative handcraft preservation.
Founded in 1992 by anthropologist, Alexandra Soteriou, to help resurrect a vanishing craft, World Paper's fashionable creations include journals, note-cards, tote bags, pocket-journals and pens, list pads, guestbooks, and paper gift items.
Much of the paper used is created from cloth cuttings left from the manufacture of tee-shirts and undergarments and not trees!
World Paper also makes paper from jute and hemp and other interesting materials without cutting any trees whatsoever.
Alexandra's decades of work in India starting with a Fulbright Grant in 1985 has been largely responsible for a renaissance of traditional hand papermaking that employs thousands of artisans.
World Paper offers design and production consultation and makes custom products to order.
