Hello! I’m Lara and welcome to The Paper Apple Co. Here’s a little bit about us…. I started out training as a fashion and textiles designer, I studied for 4 years and enjoyed every moment of it, I fell out of love with the fashion world soon after I started working in the industry and I then became a warehouse operative packing boxes and I even drove a forklift. I worked my way up and became a Health and Safety Manager. I had somewhere along the line lost my way and was no longer making or designing, which has always been part of me. I hung up my Health and Safety Hat and started a little sucessful clothing business which I ran from home.

I fell pregnant with my first child and then a had a second and became a full time Mummy. Now one is at college and the second is studying for GCSE’s I felt I could put more time getting back into what I really enjoyed doing which is designing and making. I am excited and encouraged that people really like my products that I have designed and produced, it has now turned into a full time business for me and my husband. It has been a long and hard journey setting up a small business but very rewarding when you read the feedback from the customers.
