Oyyo is a Swedish design studio that works with craftspeople in Jodhpur, India to produce these dhurries (woven carpets), made completely by hand with 100% organic cotton and vegetable dyes. Oyyo will be opening an online shop this May to debut their new collection No. 1, for now, keep an eye on their site. Beautiful work.
Seats are selling fast for our next workshop — an exciting collaboration with my friends, the talented letterpress goddesses of Regas Studio. Tuesday, March 19th from 6:30-8:30pm at the Regas Studio in Manhattan.
We’ll do an intro to modern calligraphy with Paperfinger, then hands-on demos of how to use a traditional Vandercook letterpress. Each participant will get to print some beautiful bookplates and adorn them with their new calligraphy skills.
All the details here: paperfingerworkshop.brownpapertickets.com. Registration is $150 per person, including all supplies, complimentary glass of wine and the much needed cookie accompaniment.
Hope you can join us! If you can’t, or no spots remain, let us know if you’re interested in another Paperfinger/Regas workshop and we will try to schedule another one within the week! (Email firstname.lastname@example.org).

This Paperfinger menu was featured in the current issue of Rue Magazine. The story, “Magic in the Secret Garden,” was directed and styled by Lavender Joy Weddings (thanks Stefanie!) and shot by Ryan Ray. Florals by Bows & Arrows, dinnerware from Greta Bean. I’m so happy with how it all came together.
