Years ago, we started out making our proteas as a form of deconstructed book art.  What a delight to make a new batch again  Our design has been refined and created out of many different papers over the years.  This batch is on its way to a special YPO event in Cape Town.

Each bloom is made from recycled papers – Re-purposing encyclopaedias and novels otherwise destined to be pulped.  The twisted paper and wire stems use discarded, unused dress pattern tissue paper.


We have made many many variations of proteas over the years.  Speak to us if you would like some for your

shop window,


home decor or


We are able to securely pack and ship these paper blooms all over the country and the world.

(Note – the above proteas are pictured in the legs of my recently restored wooden stool.  Painted with Annie Sloane Chalk Paint Graphite and sealed with Annie Sloane Chalk Paint Lacquer)
