We are a social entrepreneurship that aims at empowering women. Begun in 2008 by Diwia Thomas, with a handful of women, Papertrail now includes women across India residing in shelter homes, jails, orphanages & care homes.

Our flagship product is the newspaper bag, which is a non-profit vertical. The newspaper is donated by a network of donators & supplied to women residing in jails, shelter homes, orphanages & self help groups, who make the bags.

Sensing a need in the market for boxes & utilising skillsets from among our ladies, we launched a range of boxes. Boxes in various sizes & material, ranging from paper to natural fibre are available throughout the year. Customers frequently request customised and exclusive boxes which are designed and produced in-house.

Creating a magical ambience at any party, our lanterns are a rage. Ranging from table top lanterns, tea light holders, hanging lanterns, to chandeliers & sandbag lanterns, a wide range of patterns and sizes are available to suit any theme.

Our products range from newspaper bags, gift bags, gift tags, gift boxes, cake boxes, cupcake boxes,chocolate boxes, paper pens, cloth covered notebooks, note pads, paper lanterns, fridge magnets, paper decorations & more.
