Marina Paper

Maker - Amy Bernstein

Marina Paper

Maker Story

For the Record

Special memories deserve special treatment, and Marina Paper’s handmade journals provide a distinctive place to record your experiences, ideas, and reflections.

French architect Marina Shrestha launched Marina Paper in 1993 with a goal of preserving traditional Nepalese artistry. After years of traveling, Marina settled in Nepal in 1980 and became fascinated by the famed Daphne paper, which is made from a shrub that grows in the foothills of the Himalayas. Today, Marina Paper continues the region’s papermaking tradition in a socially and environmentally responsible way.

Each journal is handmade by seven people with seven different skills, from harvesting the plants to producing the materials to assembling the final product. The company collects and recycles all of its paper scraps, and its workshops produce little waste.

Marina finds inspiration in nature and in centuries of tradition, and her creativity shines through in the journals’ distinctive color palette and eclectic styles. Her vision translates into beautifully textured, authentic journals that are the perfect vessels for recording ideas, travel notes, and everyday reflections.
