Decorative Paper and Paper Craft
At Italian Home and Kitchen (425-486-8676) we carry over 400 patterns of Italian papers including traditional Varese, Florentine, hand-marbled, hand-stamped woodblock designs. We also carry dozens of floral, animal, children, and historic motifs done by Rossi and Tassotti. In addition to our paper lines, we carry a variety of notebooks, note cards, greeting cards, bookplates (ex-libris), and other stationery. Another unique feature about our shop is that Francesca and her husband Roderick make a number of desk sets and book boxes using these papers to cover them. The items range from different sizes of hand-bound book boxes, letterboxes, covered note boxes, pencil boxes, in-trays, etc….
Our collection of Italian papers is probably the largest available in the entire United States with over 400 patterns from which to choose. These papers are made of the finest materials – high grade papers with natural inks. They are great for craft use since the extreme thickness of the papers allows for easy cutting, gluing and sticking. The inks and the traditional printing processes are the best in the industry. In fact, many of our customers frame the cards and paper since the quality of the inks and sharpness of the designs make them better than most prints you find in shops these days. They are all acid free so great for scrap-booking and picture matting.
