The paper factory is open for visitors to come and see the art of making hand made paper. Every step in the process can be seen and admired. The souvenir shop opposite the factory within the premises is a must visit.

If you like Stationery Stuff and live Hand Made Paper then you must visit the store if not to buy atleast to see... well you will definitely buy once you step in there.. lovely stuff.. The charm of hand made paper can beat nothing..
Can even see how paper is made how marbling is done..
But one thing is the maintenance of factory could have been better.
Another important thing is workers work with carcinogenic chemicals there and surprisingly none were wearing gloves or protective stuff.. Surely safety is first..
The management must see to this immediately..

Actually saw the process of making paper and finished products. The whole operations are carried out by volunteers and excellent quality paper is available at reasonable prices.

If you like hand made stationery, this colourful lil place is definitely worth a visit .

Would recommend perusing the wrapping paper , gift bags and envelopes all of which cost next to nothing . The love and care taken to make these products is palpable wherever you look

Do go there to just gaze at art at its finest and support a local cottage industry while you are at it

If you are exploring Pondicherry then you must visit this place, but do so before evening as It closes by 5:30 pm. I missed the factory tour as i reached quite late and by then the last group of people were taken through the tour at around 5 pm.

The showroom has 2 rooms filled with lots of colorful paper and several items made entirely from handmade paper. These are excellent items which you can use for yourselves and take it as gift items for others and use for house decoration. All this is available at a quite reasonable price!
