Our Charity

The Australian Mitochondrial Disease Foundation


Here at The Paperie we have a precious family member affected by Mitochondrial Disease. So through our business we try our best to raise money for the Mitochondrial Disease Foundation in an effort to help them continue searching for a cure and research into this debilitating disease.

One small step we have taken to help raise funds is every time you pay our account using your credit card we match the 1.5% bank charge fee levied on that payment with a donation to the MITO foundation. In a small way we hope this helps make you feel just a little better about paying the fee when you pay by card (please remember if you would like fee free payment the direct to Bank EFT are free). On top of this small contribution we also raise significant funds for the MITO foundation from our business and also by our participation in MITO Fund raisers like ‘The Bloody Long Walk’.

Just briefly Mitochondrial Disease is a genetic disorder that robs the body’s cells of energy. Over time this can cause multiple organ dysfunction and potentially death. Mitochondria are the energy source in almost every cell in our body. They are most plentiful in tissues that require a lot of energy to function and therefore damage is most common to the brain, heart, muscles, liver, inner ear and eyes.

About Us

The home of artisan paper, stationery and gift brands

Martin and Christine Burton

Our aim is to bring you the very best quality leading artisan paper brands from Europe and around the globe. In a world where all too frequently there is a sameness to what is available, our focus is to seek out the authentic. We source fine stationery goods that are original. In our eyes this product has a value never matched by the me too’s or the mass producers. It’s made with passion, it’s made with flair and it’s often family made – artisan stationery is a way of life!


Perhaps there is no better example of this artisan approach than our range of vintage Italian calendars, wraps and cards. They have been family made by the Balocchi family for three generations who still live above their small factory in Central Florence. Lorenzo’s Nonno started production 90 years ago and they still produce the original, authentic vintage Italian stationery range on beautiful embossed Italian paper.

We look forward to working with your business to bring your customers authentic artisan paper goods from Italy and around the world.
