Fukushima moved to Toronto to study fashion at Ryerson University and soon her line was carried at local downtown boutiques. Expanding into clothing, she sourced second hand t-shirts and turned them into funky, eclectic tank tops. Paper People has since evolved to include eco-friendly options such as bamboo, hemp and organic cotton garments. The line blends colour, texture and pattern for a DIY, handmade appeal.
  • I make these garments using old t-shirts and t-shirt scraps. They're a lot of fun and look even better after a few washings. I started out doing them only in black (hence the name black widow) but they look awesome in colours too.

  • This line is made using all environmentally sustainable fabrics. I use a combination of organic cotton jersey, bamboo jersey and ECO friendly modal in addition to recycled t-shirts and sheets. The garments are decorated with accents of slashed silk* and recycled lace or doilly appliques.
