1. Passage From India



    Paper Source began with one mission: to showcase gorgeous papers from around the world. As time has gone on, though, that mission has expanded, and we’ve grown our product offerings and presence in your communities. Now, we aim to inspire others to Do Something Creative Every Day in any way their creativity takes root; however, we’ve never lost sight of our origins. We still strive to bring you beautiful papers with equally beautiful stories and our latest expedition brings you just that – eco-friendly papers from India that are as mesmerizing as they are unforgettable.
