Overview

This small shop still binds books and makes marble paper by hand. The front of the shop has a lovely selection of books, journals, frames, paper etc and you can see the artists in the back creating the items (printing the paper, sewing the bindings). It is an exquisite shop and a marvelous opportunity to see true craftsmen at work.

People were amazing and product was perfect! As soon as we walked in the door the owner greeted us and showed us around. They make their own paper and the paper is amazing!
