Il Papiro Featured

In this charming craft shop, all evidence shows that paper covers rock, in more ways than one.

Believe it or not, this is the only shop of its kind in all of Italy that produces diaries, notebooks, stationery, custom stamps and business cards for clients, all made by hand. Whether an item in the shop's collection or a client's bespoke request, each unique piece is made according to historic techniques, some of which are virtually extinct in a world where we scan business leads, voice note our dreams, and profess our love via text message. Here the written word is a commitment set on paper that's made to last. It's also a great place to find old-school cards with everything from 'thank you' to holiday festivities.
