Artisans Profile

          

Slumber Bugs is a handmade paper + screen print studio co-founded by 2 graphic designers, Wai-Ee & Li En. One of them majored in editorial design and another majored in branding but both fell in love with hand craftsmanship.

Many people would already experience making recycled newspaper during school days. However, handmade paper is not limited to only recycling paper. Fibers that are suitable for paper making can be found almost everywhere in Malaysia. From sugar cane waste to corn husk, pandan leaves to rice straws from paddy plantation. Their inspiration is to use what is around them and make something truly ours. We believe identity is very important. Malaysia has never known for paper making. Perhaps now, Malaysia can finally have our own paper.
