Paper Craft produces beautiful hand made paper in Uganda
using only natural raw materials such as banana fibers,
pineapple tops, elephant grass and recycled paper. No chemicals
are used! This paper is then transformed into beautiful as well as
useful products and unusual crafty creations.
Paper Craft was set up in 2006 to provide a sustainable income for a group of socially disadvantaged Ugandans, (mainly women) through the production and sale of hand made paper and paper products. The majority of our employees would otherwise find it almost impossible to find a job or to support their families.
We provide additional income to local farmers by purchasing elephant grass and banana fiber. We also buy pineapple tops which are considered to be waste and would otherwise be burnt, as well as collecting scrap paper from offices in Kampala.
By choosing Paper Craft you are supporting a self-sufficient sustainable business, promoting environmental awareness and encouraging recycling.
