Mad about Maria

At Paper People, we're very serious about reducing our ecological footprint.  Many of our designs are made from upcycled clothing and we recognize that while this is a great way to reduce waste, another dilemma is the scraps or "off cuts" left over after garments have been cut.  So we created our accessories line as an answer to this problem.

The Maria Arm Warmers are one of our most popular accessories for the winter season.  They're the perfect solution to many hands on activities AND the perfect fashion accessory.  So read on to learn about their many functions!

Meaghan of the Deadly Nightshades Midnight Bike Gang, an all girls arts organization and cycling collective loves the Maria Arm Warmers for those chilly fall bike missions across town.  Meg chooses a punchy pink/red pair to match with her pink Gwen Hat.  Don't these bright colours pop against her grey Modrobes jacket?  And by the way, these jackets are made from recycled pop bottles.  When can we get our hands on this fabric?

Jessie, the designer of Renegade Fawn, a local nail polish line, loves the Maria Arm Warmers because she can show off her manicure while staying warm.  Jessie's polishes are "3-free" meaning they are free of toluene, formaldehyde and dibutyl phthalate, making them gentler on the environment.   Come out to Bling It On! for her fall product launch Nov 9th!

Tanya loves the Maria Arm Warmers because they're the perfect accessory for any outfit.  She chooses the Marias in a grey and black damask print.  Don't they look great with her lace top and black shorts?

In a rare out of character moment, Jenn dons office attire to demonstrate how the Maria Arm Warmers are even suitable for the workplace.  

For those of you who complain of an overly frigid workplace, the Maria Arm Warmers will help you to keep on typing!
