Located in the historic York Shambles, Paperesque specialises in handmade paper, gifts and journals.

When starting in 2015, Paperesque's mission was to spread the love and admiration that they had for the artisans and the craftsmanship involved in producing handmade stationery. Working with small family-run businesses in Nepal, India, Japan and Italy they now stock a rich variety of handmade sheet paper, artist papers, calligraphy supplies, leather journals, stationery and paper related gifts.


“In today's digital age it is great that so many people still share our love and enthusiasm for stationery and writing”
