Work: Textile and Paper

By Preksha Sharma

Taking a little break from graphic design and other digital studios, we decided to look for studios primarily working with physical mediums like textiles and papers for the ‘Studio Profile’ section of Kyoorius Magazine #16. Here are some exciting studios and their work, from around the world. Here are some snippets; pick up your copy of the Magazine to read the whole feature.

A visit to Botto will take you through a series of interesting ‘walls’, many painted with graffiti as a part of Mumbai’s ‘The Wall Project’; where incidentally the founders, Nisha Castelino and Nitya Amarnath, first met. Botto is a print and textile design studio based in Mumbai. Though the strength of the studio lies in its textile prints, you can also see some interesting work in upcycling and surface explorations.





Pappenpop is a print-design studio based in Madrid, founded by Paula Pappenheim Garrigues. Pappenheim Garrigues’ journey to being a print designer started when she discovered the world of motifs, “…and specially repeating those motifs to achieve a new perspective and ways of looking at those elements out of context.” Its designs have characteristic pop art influences, queer forms, bright colours and much like its name, a peppy tone.




Chicago based Made by Julene’s founder Julene Harrison’s love for paper started with her first paper cut art which was a lightweight gift for her then boyfriend (now husband) that she could easily send overseas. As it was well received, I made two more as wedding resents. I started a blog with these pieces and people seemed to like them. That’s when I started getting commissions, initially from friends and then from strangers.”




French artist Alexis Facca (whose company was earlier called Paper Donuts) stumbled upon the multitudes of possibilities that paper has to offer while working in a printing house post his interior design studies three years ago. He experimented with the tonnes of paper available at the printing house and started posting them on Facebook. “Then some friends asked me to create flyers, posters for their music bands, and one day a creative agency contacted me for my first “real” paper work,” he says.



For Sonali Maniar, founder of India based paper boutique Templetree, paper was always the first love. After coming back to Mumbai in 2006 from Hong Kong, she initially started with greeting cards and other small customized orders and then eventually launched a retail store. And a year ago, Rachana Palamreddy joined her as a partner and the Templetree retail outlet has been launched in Bangalore.
