James Cropper is the official paper sponsor for London Craft Week 2017, an annual event that showcases the very best British and international creativity and craftsmanship.
The prestige paper innovators, based in the Lake District, have supplied London Craft Week with speciality paper made from coffee cup waste to create the London Craft Week guide. The up-cycled ‘Coffee’ papers, include Latte 350gsm in a textured Buckram finish and Latte 100gsm for the internal pages, produced using fibre from the company’s unique coffee cup recycling facility.
The third edition of the event, running from 3 to 7 May, brings together a programme of more than 230 design, fashion, art, luxury, food and culture events taking place at venues including the V&A, The Shard, RADA and The House of Lords, as well as ‘off the beaten track’ settings, many of which are not normally open to the public.
Steve Adams, Managing Director of James Cropper said: “We’re proud to be a partner sponsor of London Craft Week again this year. Our paper technologists and craftspeople have a 170-year heritage of creating beautiful, tactile papers for modern and traditional applications in bespoke colours, weights and finishes.
“Some of our papers can be seen in the creative innovation showcased at this event, which is a fantastic celebration of global creativity. Over the years we’ve worked closely with artists, designers, galleries and luxury brands and are committed to supporting the arts industry now and in the future.”
The business has been carefully stewarded and nurtured by six generations of the Cropper family and is renowned globally for individual expertise in colour, dedicated responses to the most challenging custom projects and award-winning commitment to the highest standards of sustainability.
Guy Salter OBE MVO, Chairman of London Craft Week said: “James Cropper papers exude the superior craftsmanship that is synonymous with London Craft Week. The lovingly crafted papers and high-quality finishes demonstrate an exceptional attention to detail, which is the epitome of what the event is all about.”
