PaperPhine in run by Linda Thalmann and her team in a tiny 19th century studio in Vienna, Austria. Linda is a serious paper lover, and has turned her obsession and textile training into a thriving business. Paper twine is strong but pliable with a fabulous texture and brilliant, saturated colors. The twine is made in Europe for Linda (from European wood). She hand dyes each and every spool. Like hand dyed yarn, there will be some slight variation in color, but to be honest, we couldn't see it. Linda is very good at this.
P.S. -- Paper twines can get wet! Linda suggests cleaning with a damp cloth (though a they will withstand a light rinse!). But, to pass them to the next generation, she recommends keeping them away from water and humidity.
