FAIR TRADE

Paper High only work with small family businesses, community incentives, charities and accredited fair trade organisations. Every product is produced by standards as set out by the World Fair Trade Organisation (WFTO) and is handmade by skilled artisans using sustainable or recycled materials wherever possible.

The canvas tote bags are made through Conserve India, a fair trade project which was born out of a desire to reduce India’s mountain of waste. There is a strong emphasis on recycling and repurposing of materials, whilst improving the lives of some of the poorest people in India. It employs and trains hundreds of people from Delhi’s most disadvantaged communities to create beautiful products from the waste and the profits are put back into the same communities to improve education and welfare.
Paper High was born out of a love of travelling. Founders Mark and Claire set off on a year long round-the-world trip in 1998. Three years later an extended stay in Kathmandu and a chance meeting with a paper maker sowed the seed of an exciting business idea.

After setting up a stall at Camden Market, Mark and Claire found that people loved the unique quality of handmade books as much as they did, and their business has grown from there.
