Turning trash into treasure: Paper waste gets a new life

After leaving my science career to spend more time with my three children, I knew I could finally also find the time to pursue my lifelong passion for arts and crafts. I starting learning the art of making paper by hand, and after a couple of years I opened up The Paper Recyclery on Etsy. I make all my products in my home studio in beautiful San Diego, California, where I can work outdoors year round. I make my papers mainly from recycled paper waste but I also use cotton rag and occasionally plant fibers, like corn husks and garden waste. As being eco-friendly is part of my family's life-style, I am thrilled to be able to create a product that is both beautiful and environmentally sustainable.

I am a born perfectionist and take a lot of pride in my work, which means that I carefully check every sheet of paper I sell, to make sure it meets my high quality standards. However, as each sheet is made individually by hand, the product maintains the unique, charming, slightly imperfect character of a handmade product.

I make papers in different shapes and sizes and colors. My items include stationery, envelopes, cards, gift tags, bookmarks and more. I recycle office waste, brown paper bags, and colorful flyers, and I am able to make papers of a wide color range. I am always happy to take custom orders, so if you need something you can't find in my shop, don't hesitate to ask.
