Stores & Products

After interviewing, we found that dedicate to this industry is not easy.
What they are doing is not about making money but conveying the idea of regenerate and giving paper different meaning.
They have their thinking and believe and they work silently, making all meaning life to be continued. The following are to introduce some stores or companies, which they are spreading seed paper, and summarize how they popularize the concept of seed paper.

Woopapers

蕪蕪紙創Woopapers was founded in 2012, they devote themselves to handmade seed paper products design development and customization service. They position themselves in a lively brand, hoping to transmit love and temperature through the hand feel with handmade paper’s products.
蕪蕪, it means lush growth of trees and grass. Though grass is small, it still has indomitable and firm’s viability.

We only believe this journey is worthy when confronting with people’s curiosity and questions. Adventure and strong imply the toughness between brand and lives and we need to hold the cherishing to earth’s ecology. Our paper pulp is from reprocessed paper and vegetable fiber. When planting seed paper into the soil and then burgeon, the paper will decompose and return back to the soil without a waste and harm to our environment.

Pinkoi Handmade Paper is located on the second floor of Taipei New Horizon Shopping Complex in the Songshan Cultural and Creative Park.
As soon as we enter the store, we smelled the fragrance of wood. 
The designer of Pinkoi Handmade Paper, Li Meng Shu, gave up a stable pay and job as a teacher. She started to write her thesis on seed paper and set up a workshop which is for teaching and product development and she finally succeeded.
The founder, Li Meng Shu started to get in touch with handmade paper and wrote thesis on it when she was in graduation school.
She headed for the Philippines and visited a Taiwanese paper factory in Philippines. She was motivated by stacking skill that creates different patterns and layer of  handmade paper.
Longing for creation, she confessed that the decision she made three years ago was kind of stubborn. Due to her insistency, then she can realize her dream of creativity.
Although she decided to survive in this spacious market and the income isn’t as stable as being a teacher, she still follows the sound inside of her heart and is obsessed with paper.

Pinkoi handmade products definitely is not an example of making money but full of history of paper and beauty of creation. From products development to lessons design that is less related to the commercial market, it has a touch of freshness at the age of creativity.
In here, we can experience seed paper by DIY and it takes a long time, so we have to make a reservation in advance.

Of The Earth - Handmade Seed Embedded Papers

About the store:Since 1995, made by hand in Seattle we offer full sheet deckle edge seed papers. Founded in 1995 by Kevin and Lori Graham; two people who shared a passion for each other and a passion for the world around them. In planning their own wedding they discovered they enjoyed working together both. They still have some of the original invitation pieces. Then they discussed what they wanted out of life and realized that they had an opportunity to make a difference and a living together. They saw that wedding invitations touch so many people and can have an impact in their choice of words, paper and delivery.

Their Eco Commitment: Lori and Kevin realized that they could reach even more people if they helped other couples to send green wedding invitations. In the intervening ten plus years their dream has become a reality with more than 1,000,000 people receiving a card or invitation made on paper created by hand with the earth in mind. We are also proud of us. To encourage our customers to use less paper.

Wildflower Papers

About the store:We are passionate about the environment and the plight of our native British wildflowers, butterflies, bees and other insects. We want to do our little bit to help by encouraging people to grow more nectar-rich flowers and to use recycled papers and eco-friendly stationery – all to help save our beautiful planet.

Their Eco Commitment:

We want to spread the word about wildflowers and how important they are to biodiversity. Some insects rely on only one species of wildflower, for example, and once that wildflower becomes extinct or severely endangered, then so does the life of that insect species. Growing wildflowers in your garden is a small but important step in helping our native wildlife. All of our wildflower seeds are of native UK origin. We do not buy them in from Europe where the mixes are not entirely of British species. We only supply seeds that are of British wildflowers, and therefore suitable for our climate and insects.

Products:Tags, Seed papers, Envelopes……etc.
