Paper Panda started in 2010, with Louise Firchau making typographical lyrical papercuts from recycled paper. Since then PP has grown significantly and now has a number of very distinct styles and a multitude of merchandise so that everyone can have a piece of the original bear. The 'Woodland Friends' series of papercuts have been hand drawn and hand cut by Louise. They are inspired by Quarwood, where the Panda family lived in a little cottage in the Cotswolds surrounded by animals and woodland life. Now Paper Panda has it's own extensive range of giftware that can be found in the online shop, as well as it's own Papercutting and Swapping/Selling Facebook groups. Everything that has been created is either made in house, or by small UK businesses wherever possible. Louise has taught thousands of people to papercut through online groups using our papercutting starter kit (also available in the shop).
