Today I went shopping for the paper with which I’ll be wrapping vases and containers this weekend. Wanted to share pictures of paper heaven Hiromi Paper Inc. in Santa Monica, CA. It’s located in the Bergamot Arts station gallery and studio compound, but has a fully functional website where you can order all of their papers.
Some of the standout papers from the trip were the brightly colored Indian, Japanese and Thai decorative paper sheets
And the real wood veneer Paper Woods, available in Maple, Aspen, Walnut, Cherry, Cedar and Birdseye Maple for prices ranging from $3.50 for an 8.5″ x. 11″ sheet to $9.80 for the more expensive woods’ 11″ x. 17″ sheets. They’re flexible enough to definitely wrap a cylindrical vase with them (not sure about folding them around a square vase and making clear corners without snapping). Stay tuned after the weekend, because I bought a large sheet to experiment with!
