Hello! Thank you for taking the time and care to find out a little bit more about Papio Press!
Papio Press is run by husband and wife illustrating team Harry & Zanna Goldhawk from their seaside cottage in Cornwall. They met at university while studying Illustration. After many late nights in the studio they discovered a shared love of nature and colour that sparked many collaborative projects. Eventually Papio Press was born in the summer of 2014, and it's been the most rewarding, incredible experience, and the best creative outlet.
From the very beginning we knew we wanted to use Papio Press to help support other UK small business, and we've always been very aware of our environmental impact. Which is why nearly all of our products are printed in the UK by other small UK businesses. The beautiful archival paper we use for our Art prints is produced in a traditional British Paper Mill. Here at Papio Press we are also very careful to make sure as much of our products is environmentally friendly as possible, which is why all our paper stationery is printed on 100% recycled paper, and even the cellophane bags we use are biodegradable.
But Harry & Zanna's main passion will always be with the illustration. All our products are designed in house by Harry or Zanna (or both!). Both work hard to make sure that all the artwork they create tells it's own unique and beautiful story, with gorgeous botanicals and characteristic animals. We like to think that this is what makes our products so special and covetable.
