Playing with Patterns

The idea for my shop started when I decided to make my sister a unique gift for her birthday - an origami tree, to display on her new minimal white bookshelf. I started off designing some fan and floral patterns, appropriate for origami, but eventually my patterns became more geometric the more I played with them.

After completing the origami tree for my sister, I decided I had to do something with all these patterns I created. With a love for paper and print, I naturally turned to stationery and paper goods.

I purchased some beautiful textured paper from Pedigree Papers that I had previously used for personal projects, and went to work, applying my patterns to different items, printing them on my home computer and cutting them myself by hand.

I feel very attached to these patterns, as I have spent a lot of time with them, and so, as an avid bookworm, decided to name them after beloved characters from stories. I hope you enjoy picking them out, as I hope you enjoy using the unique and beautiful paper goods I have created.

I ship from Melbourne, Australia. Below are approximate delivery times:

Domestic items are posted via registered post with tracking, apart from bookmarks or single greeting/postcards which can fit in a regular business sized envelope.

Orders that are being shipped internationally, please be aware there may be customs/tax costs for your country. This will not be paid by the shop, the customer is responsible.

When ordering for Christmas please ensure you order earlier than the standard shipping period allows for. It's not the responsibility of the shop if orders arrive late - unfortunately this can't be helped due to the busy period.
