Paper craft

OCT-2012 – Move over the time-worn brown-coloured or even shiny, glittering paper that was the mainstay to pack gifts. The commonplace paper has undergone a complete makeover in the past few decades to arrive as a design statement. Available in vibrant colours and different textures, a piece of paper can become a piece of art though embroidery and embellishments. Paper’s utility, too, is no more confined to textbooks or sketchbooks. Designers are coming up with a plethora of artefacts made of paper, starting from wedding invitation cards to gift packages to bags to laundry hampers to even lamp shades. “Paper is the material which has inspired us for the last 20 years to form relations with leading designers internationally leveraging our parent company ‘Artifacts India’ to a leading exporter in our field. Colour is actually my strength. Paper is definitely the most important component, but colour is what gives the product a beautiful form. Combining in-house cardboard and paper with colours, embroideries, and embellishments gives my products an edge over others in the market,” says Savina Sharan, the brain behind the store Art Papyrus in Delhi. She took to the profession after wedding cards designed by her for her daughter’s wedding was appreciated by friends and family. In current times, when people are more than willing to spend a little bit extra for weddings and baby showers, Art Papyrus caters to the demands by providing customers with a wide array of products. Its merchandise includes everything from colourful bottle decorative accessories, stationery, exclusively designed reams of wrapping papers, gifts boxes, bags, printed /plain /metallic tissue papers, laundry hampers, folding side racks, shoe racks, bottle corks to high profile wedding invitations, gift packages for weddings and baby showers.
