About

A big warm welcome to Folk Paper.

Folk Paper is the creative outlet of me; Swedish, Stockholm-based Art Director Maria Kruse. Folk Paper is meant to be an alternative, magazine-style blog that offers you some genuinely well thought-out content, curated inspiration and an alternative way of seeing things.

Let’s call it a journey to a more timeless, sustainable aesthetic.

Maria Kruse

Folk Paper is grounded in a minimalistic space with a special focus on Scandinavian design and aesthetics. I am not here to rapport on the latest trends or newest products, but rather to put things in a larger context. Don’t get me wrong, I still think it´s interesting and important to follow what is going on in the world. Trends and tendencies typically tell us something about the place we live in and about the future. I just don’t feel that trends should dictate our consumption patterns. I would like to encourage and inspire to a more timeless, personal aesthetic. A more sustainable one. 

Folk Paper was founded in 2018 and launched in 2019.
