Anaquiños de papel. Origami Art pieces and paper crafts
Anaquiños de papel is founded in A Coruña (Spain) in 2012 when two sisters, Bea (architect) and Cristina (lawyer), both passionate about design and interiors, discovered Origami and decided to apply that technique in the creation of decorative custom handmade pieces, using paper as their basic raw material.
We asked them a few questions so you can get to know them a little better and learn from their experiences, directly told by themselves.
How did you start? Why you decided to become a Maker?
– We began in 2012 as a hobby showcasing our Origami creations in our blog.
What is the story behind your use of materials and your technique? How much time do you spend experimenting and creating?
– We started using paper because it’s a material that we always had on our desks, Bea as an architect working with blueprints and Cristina with legal files. The time spent creating depends on the piece to be made and its difficulties and the customer requirements.
Why did you decide to create your own brand? What makes your pieces so unique?
– Eventually, our hobby began to be a fundamental part of our life and we began to receive order requests from very interesting companies, so we decided to take the step and start our own business. Each of our pieces is handmade with the best quality papers and with much love and care.
You are talented and with a growing online community. We know that all this is true and that it takes a lot of time and effort to get to that point. What would you say to those independent makers who are trying to create their own products and make a living of it?
– Well, to be advised and that they invest in good professionals and delegate all aspects in which they don’t have knowledge, so they can devote themselves in creating and selling.
What do you like about Crafture?
– It’s a very interesting initiative full of style and much needed.
Anaquiños de papel means “Small pieces of paper” in galego, their (our) mother tongue. You can find more about them and their amazing work in their website and don’t forget to follow their very active and full of color Instagram account.
