winter collection


Here at Porridge Papers, we take great pride in pulling each sheet of paper from the vat. From the bales of cotton and recycled fiber that make their way to our mill to the hops from our evening’s local brew, everything is top-notch.

For the last 30 years we have been creating paper for Design Studios, Calligraphers, Printers and Paper Lovers alike. With the help of our beaters, Holly & Heidi, our 20 ton press, The Big Squeeze, our printing presses, Vandy & Francesca, we can print on just about any paper we make.
