Flettede Fugle becomes Papirfamilien

Our family business is developing and since both wives, girlfriends and other family are now involved in the paper workshop, the name must of course be apt. Therefore, please welcome "Papirfamilien" (The Paper Family).

25 different DIY paper birds

We expand the flock every year and you are welcome to write to us if there is a particular bird that you think we should prioritize. You can also find more than 100 designs in our books.
