Géraldine Javoy creates, entirely by hand, a wide range of paper craft - journals, note/sketch books, guest books, photo albums and frames. Each product is handmade using the most refined silks and Japanese printed papers. To make unique pieces, she now designs her own patterns and hand paints them on Kozuke paper or get them printed in Cork. The pages of the books and albums are traditionally sewn by hand. Geraldine also designs and creates canvases with collage of Chiyogami paper patterns on acrylic and water colour painted backgrounds. For special occasions she can customise any of the products available.
