Parawana Paper works with local artisans in Lahore, Pakistan, who are involved in the art of paper-making, bookbinding and block printing, and provides them with financial, technical and design support to develop contemporary artifacts. 

These products are hand crafted, using cotton and silk textile remnants and plant fibers. Ours is not mass produced watercolour stock, which is manufactured on hand operated high-speed machines. Instead each piece of paper is individually made by hand.

Raw Original Writing

This is what I call "Old School Writing". These are not only unique in the fact that they are recycled, but it is so nice to actually use pencils! I am a journalist, so I do use my laptop a good portion of the time. However, on my free time when I write other things: poetry, book ideas, notes, grocery list, etc, I LOVE having a pencil! Plus, they are just so cute! Love them!

So cool

Love the newspaper pencils and they sharpen really well
