With Amanda’s Blue Swirl Pencil Cup, you can enjoy the time-honored art of marbled paper every day on your desktop, countertop or even the vanity. “Marbleized papers have always brought about a sense of exoticism for me,” Amanda notes. “At one time, the Europeans called them ‘Turkish papers’ due presumably to a readily available source from Turkey in the 17th and 18th centuries, but the process soon spread around the world. European bookbinders used these beautiful swirling designs as end papers to embellish their fine, leather-bound books for centuries.” We created our marbleized paper accessories in cheerful swirls of bright Lindroth blue to give each useful item in this unique collection a touch of old-world charm, and a bit of exoticism too! Perfect for holding pencils or make-up brushes, this rectangular storage container is crafted of handmade 100% recycled cotton paper artfully marbled by hand and lined with a coordinating blue-and-white printed paper. Amanda’s Blue Swirl Pencil Cup collapses for convenient flat storage.
