Story of Paperimuru
Thank you for visiting my little shop. My name is Satu (it means fairytale), and i am a single mom of two kids. My daughter also has congenital heart defect and autism spectrum disorder. I am her official caregiver. We live in the capital of Finland, Helsinki. I used to be a librarian, studying sociology at the University of Helsinki, but founding Paperimuru has changed that a little, since i no longer have time for my studies.
I have loved everything paper since i was just a little kid myself. I still have (and treasure) a journal i made when i was maybe five years old. It has odd little poems written in handwriting like a chicken scratch. Every page is also decorated with die cuts and drawings. A little after this journal was made i also started penpalling and both of these hobbies i have had, and loved, ever since. (It has been over 30 years since i made that little book!)
In 2017 my mother asked me if i had ever thought about selling paper products, because it is something i love and cherish so very much. And the world definitely needs more love and happiness, don't you think? So here i am with my own little paper store to share my paperlove with all of you.
Since 2017 Paperimuru has grown from a little from "i sell a few washis here and there" kind of thing to a bigger papershop that offers a large variety of especially Japanese paper products. I only sell paper products i love myself. We also have our own brick and mortar shop in Töölö, Helsinki. I am extremely thankful, that you have made my silly, little dream of owning a papershop come true. Paperimuru would be nothing without all of you.
