About Paper J
Paper J started at Christmas last year when JC proceeded to make a Christmas tree from paper for a get-together with friends. He had such fun doing this that he decided to attempt making his own protea paper flower. The rest was history. Paper J only uses 2nd hand materials to create, however if the needs be, they custom create anything according to clients specifications. They create Proudly South African, handmade products. These lovilees pride themselves in supporting The SPCA’s 2nd hand bookshops, and giving yesterdays books a 2nd life. The funding of the purchase goes directly to animals in need.


What products are available from Paper J?
Their range includes, but is not limited to Proteas, Dahlias and small rosettes, rose bottles, angel wings. They also make trendy canvas wallets from other recycled materials. All the products are uniquely marked with a clay tag to show the trademark item purchased at Paper J.

What is your favourite item{s} to make?
The Paper Protea and the Paper Brooches


What has been your biggest project to date?
I was the art director on a new band “Annica” and everything was made out of paper because the songs name is sprokiesverhaal (Fairytale).
