About (old)


At Thisispaper we make items that are lasting, sustainable and well-designed, which we believe should be a norm, not luxury.

We value timeless over trendy, few over many and plain over fancy - that's probably the most condensed way of putting into words what Thisispaper Shop is about. We launched it in 2013 because of a need that we have long felt but failed to satisfy elsewhere. That is, the need to be sure that what we buy is made with care and skill, that it will last for years without losing its beauty or efficiency, and that neither the environment nor the makers suffer harm in the manufacturing process. Our products are designed and manufactured by us, by hand, at our Warsaw studio. All of them are made with respect for the Earth's scarce resources and little concern for passing trends.
