About

Handwoven in New Jersey

I’m Rachael, originally from England. I received a box of art straws as a child. When I came across them 30 years later, I thought my girls might enjoy them too. What began as an annual tradition of making Christmas gifts for teachers, friends and family, has turned into our family business, “A Thousand Paper Lanterns”.

Each unique lantern is hand woven from paper art straws. The small hanging lantern is a favorite with customers, while my favorite will always be the “conch shell” inspired table lamp. Each lantern includes either battery or plug in lights, making the lanterns portable or permanent, perfect for centerpieces, nightlights or accent lighting.

Our family goal is simple. We hope to sell enough lanterns to help us visit family in England each year. Now that my sisters and I have our own children, we treasure the opportunity for an annual get-together. My personal goal is to venture out of my comfort zone and embrace the ups and downs of selling something handmade.
