It’s always so rewarding to stumble across a gem of a maker — or have her find me, as was the case here. However it happened, Chris of Dotplaid is just such a gem.

Evidence of the person behind the paper is most evident in her exquisite hand-made, hand-dyed wares. Chris uses a variety of mediums in hand-dying  — even Kool-aid — and relishes exploring how the dyes and colors absorb into different textures and papers. Her love for the process is evident in each piece, made one-by-one and truly one-of-a-kind. Awash in color and graced with gorgeous hand-lettering, any of these would be a treat to receive. Shop it all here — and be sure to revisit frequently to see what Chris has been up to!
