2018/04/18 Flaws don't matter

Not everything always comes out 100% perfect, but some things can still be saved! For example with handstamps - these were used to change several folders with little imperfections into unique pieces, which are far more poetic then those of perfect quality... That's upcyclation in real life. Come and pick one yourself before they're gone! They are for sale in papelote shop right now.

2018/04/16 Recycling - second chance

At the occasion of Earth Day, all of our products made of recycled paper are offered with a 10% discount! Recycling is a process crucial for our future. It reduces the amount of produced waste and saves resources. Even though paper is made of renewable resources, it still deserves other incarnations. Cellulose fibers are reusable - it would be a waste to send them to a landfill after their first fulfilled task...

2018/02/19 New packaging of notebook straps

Our key product has finally got a new packaging! The original cellophane bags were abandoned years ago and we offered the straps unpacked - however, then they lacked some sort of comprehensibility, especially when sold somewhere other then in our shop. For that reason we newly equipped it with a compostable card, which carries important information about the strap itself as well as about papelote...

2018/02/12 In good company

It's been an honour to become a part of the Fair Company project, which connects about 60 Czech companies that don't set profit as their primary goal, but are also concerned about the needs of everyone involved in business - the owners as well as the employees, customers, community, and the planet as a whole. The journey to achieving such goal has been as long as the existence of the company itself, filled with little successful steps, moments of shuffle as well as a few missteps. However, in this case it is safe to say that "the journey is the destination" and we are happy to share it with you!

2018/02/12 Papelote takes up composting!

In papelote we take pride in thorough separating and recycling of all sorts of waste. Therefore adding organic waste was just a matter of time. After initial difficulties with taking out boxes filled with tea leaves, coffee grounds and plant-based leftovers to our composts at home, we came up with a much more convenient solution - we obtained our very own organic waste bin and also made it available to other occupants of the house. Our shared organic treasure then makes its way into a local composting plant, where it's turned into fertile soil for the Prague's greenery.

2017/12/12 Second chance for people and paper

We in papelote always stick to the motto, which says that the most sustainable paper is one not wasted; that is why we always try to find new use for residual material.

The papelote workshop has been busy for quite some time with an unexpected heritage. These notebooks were given to us by our locksmith. They were inherited by him from his uncle who once hand-bound and then left them in boxes in a corner of a garage.
