Paper Tree is a family run business, so we understand the importance of finding that perfect gift for your loved ones or item for your home. We combine intricate design & craftsmanship with digital tools & machinery to create well crafted, distinctive gifts that you can personalise specifically to your needs.
We love each beautiful product that is created in our studio and love to share them, with your own personal touch of course! We have big plans, have had an incredible adventure so far & it is amazing to watch our small idea change into a worldwide dream.
Where It All Began
Lets go back to Christmas 2012. Laura’s Mum set a challenge for the family that year. Each member of the family had to stick to a small budget for each gift. Finding something unique and personal within budget seemed impossible so we decided to create our own. The first Paper Tree was created! A Family tree was cut from paper and coffee beans were used as the leaves. This original tree is the inspiration behind our signature designs and our unique leaf. (coffee bean resemblance)
In 2015 Laura completed the New Frontiers programme. Which is an entrepreneur programme funded by Enterprise Ireland. Learning the fundamental business skills in order to turn our idea into a growing Start up business. Now our gifts are delivered worldwide and are treasured in thousands of homes.
