Paper Mache Hippo Box handmade by artisans in the Philippines
Paper Capers International was started in 1988 as a subcontractor for a major exporter of ladies' fashion accessories and novelty gift items. It was originally based in Quezon City, but as it grew it was moved to Antipolo City, where it could utilize a larger space to organize the raw materials, process the plastic injection-molding and accommodate a larger grouped of in-house artisans. Nurturing the company with a commitment towards product design, artisan welfare and product efficiency, the proprietor Arlene Gaddi Maceda and her younger brother Arthur Flores Gaddi are committed to making the world a better place; and they believe with Paper Capers they have.
Paper Capers offers a range of handmade paper mache products, corrugated cardboard photo frames, paper Christmas trees, and many other interesting products. The majority of the raw materials for these products are sourced from trash pickers and assorted junk dealers that collect the plastics and papers they need from dump sites. The raw materials are collected, cleaned and separated by color and type before they are recomposed into the amazing array of home decor and novelty items offered by Paper Capers.
Paper Capers is a 23 year old hub for happy skilled and multitalented individuals. They enjoy sharing a passion for creativity, a knack for beauty, and a mindset of goodness. They are steered by a familial love for planet earth and each other.
