100% joy, 100% unique. A little hand made joy in a world of machines and mass manufacture. Get back to a time when individuality was the norm, not the exception.
Papercake Trading was conceived by Andrea Van Stryp & Anneke Pettenburger one Saturday afternoon over a glass of wine at Question Mark in Melville. We had grand ideas, some which have panned out, some not. But we’ve always kept the dream alive. Making the things we love and sharing it with the world.

As the story goes we started in a garage, covered in clay, glue and grout and subsequently worked our way into a studio in Greenside. We have been creating since 2006 with our crew of ladies and hope to keep growing in ideas and size!
