Marina Paper is a Nepal-based company specialized in designing and creating high quality handcrafted products, exclusively made from Nepal’s traditional artisan materials. The company head and designer, Marina Shrestha, founded Marina Paper in 1993 and over the years has developed it into the socially and environmentally responsible company it is today, creatively striving to preserve Nepal’s living heritages.
All Marina Paper products are patiently made by hand with Nepal’s finest craftsmanship, every step of the way from harvesting the plant to producing the materials up to assembling the final product. To uphold Nepal’s cultural heritage, its economy and to enhance the prestige of Nepalese handiwork, we create innovative high quality products, artfully designed for contemporary times and handcrafted to perfection.

“Ever since I was a child, I have carried a deep passion for handicrafts, particularly the ancient arts and crafts, which seemed to come from so far away in time. I am fascinated by the idea that our roots reach so far back over the centuries and yet are connected to us, extending further still into the future. This link gives me the feeling that I am a part of the whole and not just a mere individual.” - Marina
