What a crazy couple of months we’ve had at Paper High from October to January! With introducing new seasonal staff to the world of Paper High and preparing ourselves for the big Christmas rush I think that it’s safe to say, we’ve made through to the other side in one piece! Yay!
After the overall success from the previous Christmas, we decided that in 2014 we would need a few more elves in the warehouse to make sure everything ran smoothly and make sure that we could maintain the high standard of customer service that we always try our best to achieve. It’s been great having our small team of five temporarily grow to a lovely team of eight! We’ve made new friends and loved every second of working with such great people, we will be sad to see them leave.
We introduced a few new lines including a fabulous range of Indian handmade vintage style leather bags to our range of products and were pleased that they went down really well!
Our top selling product overall this Christmas has got to be our new range of leather bags. As a late arrival we only had a limited stock of these in to begin with but they sold so well we couldn’t ignore their success and so we decided to get a few more made.
These bags come in two ranges; recycled coloured leather bags and naturally tanned leather bags. But I warn you, you may not be able to resist! I don’t think it would be easy to find such great quality leather bags for such a reasonable price and they’re Fair Trade! What more could you ask for?
Another top seller for us this Christmas was our antique effect glass baubles, it’s funny because we’re still selling loads of them now, even though Christmas is over! Strange… But we can’t complain really!
Our Tree of Life journal also sold like hotcakes this winter, so well that we’ve completely sold out but there are loads of other styles to choose from!
Usually, our medium size Indra stitched and embossed leather journals would be our best selling journal but it seems that the tree of life journal may be in the running to take over this title.
Seeing as the tree of life journal sold so well we introduced some more Celtic and authentic designed journals like our Ganesh and Ohm journals and a couple more animal journals like our elephant designs.
One of the great things about our leather journals is that the leather used for the covers is a by-product of the meat industry and is tanned using natural dye, and to make them even more ethically friendly the paper inside is Khadda paper (recycled cotton paper) so something a bit different with the bonus of being eco friendly!
