Ronisha, owner and creator of Paper Yam is a lover of paper and stationary, reflecting “My favourite thing as a child was getting a brand new Crayola briefcase set every year that came filled with fresh pens and paper! This initiative will hopefully bring the same enjoyment to others”
Ronisha continued “I called my business Paper Yams, as growing up Yams were only seen when shopping with my Nannie (grandma) as they were only found in certain vegetable shops within cultural hubs. Now strolling through supermarkets today, you see a vast array of tropical fruit and veg.”
Yams are thought to symbolise warm and caring relationships, as well as being a staple food in many countries. Paper Yam’s designs combine a love for paper and fostering warm and caring relationships. See designs below, or click here for a link to their website.
