About Our Papers.
All our papers are tree-friendly and biodegradable.
We offer two different varieties of seed paper: Lux and Bloom.
Lux seed paper comes in 130gsm and 200gsm and has an off-white, almost ivory colour. It has a lower growth success rate but it's strength lies within the great quality and beautiful texture and finish. We use the 200gsm variety for all printed material.
Bloom seed paper is 250gsm, whiter in colour and whilst it is less populated with seeds and has a more rustic finish, it offers a much higher growth success rate as it is air dried which gives the seeds their best chance of germinating. It is made using residual cotton from the textile industry.
If your priority is the look of the paper we recommend you go for Lux, but if what really matters to you is having a higher chance of the seeds blooming, Bloom is your best bet. Whichever you choose, don't forget they are both a more eco-friendly alternative to standard papers.
To grow: submerge in 5mm of water and keep in natural light. After a few days or weeks, the seeds will start sprouting. Transfer to a pot with compost and water regularly. Please bear in mind that, as with everything in nature, many factors will come into play. While we cannot guarantee success, your seeds should sprout if looked after properly.
Elephant Poo Paper
Handmade in India from elephant poo and cotton fibres, each sheet of this paper is so specially unique in colour and texture as elephant poo can change depending on each elephant's age and diet. Using the poo to make paper provides a source of income for the elephant sanctuaries that our makers work with. This paper is a thinner card (180gsm) although each sheet will vary as they are hand made. They are a great novelty option for kids stationery, father's day cards, businesses that work with animals and much, much more!
Handmade in India from sugarcane and cotton fibres, this beautiful paper offers a white bright speckled finish that adds elegance to all prints. Rather than letting all of the plant leftovers go to waste, this is a great way of giving them new life. Our sugarcane paper comes in a 200gsm card (approx. - these are hand made too!) and the result is so natural, organic and unique it is sure to add a special touch to any stationery and printed material.
